PAlady, Thanks for replying to my post & I understand your concern regarding my choice to withdraw myself from the medication without medical supervision. I don't have a pain contract with this dr. so that is a moot point. I've tried to reach the dr but he's on vacation til the middle of July & has no dr covering for him. Also, I'll be 3000 miles away visiting my father who is very ill with cancer. That's why I've decided to discontinue the oxycodone. I do understand & appreciate your concern on that point. And yes, I am afraid of becoming addicted to this medication but I believe I already am addicted to it. I most likely will try & consult with a dr when I arrive at my destination. But until I get there I thought I'd try & get a bit of advice from others going through the same problem. Thanks for your time & I really do understand where you're coming from on this. Sincerely, Soundslide
Im new here, but oh my goodness! Bless your heart. Oh I wish so much you didnt have to face that alone. You must be very stong indeed.
But I was thinking (always get me into trouble!) I go to a pain management clinic. I dont want you to think its just a bunch of duel-weilding pain killin docotrs either. it isnt. In fact mine was able to tailor a plan to suit my lifestyle without the use of perscription narcotics. No kidding! And you know? I have two little girls , no kidding, age 8 and 5. I dont have a family, mom to call or some nanny in toe to take care of household. Just me and I have to be on the ball and ready to go! 24/7. (i remember it clearly, somewhere in fine print it said CHILDREN = NO HOLIDAYS OR VACATIONS FOR 20yrs!). So just thought maybe pain management might be a differant route to take once things settle down (gosh im so sorry to hear of your loss) and you find yourself with a day to spare. I got some cool info here some place lemme look..
Here we go, this kinda jist of things..
And again, just a thought. I mean shoot i ve even heard of a process in which folks get their nerves "singed" with a radio wave of some sort..
Edit : Sprry did realize not allowed to post links, sorry.
