i think u and stella r absolutely right about
not asking for a specific med or by name...i really didnt mean that, i was jsut trying to give u as much info on what i went thru and what worked or what happened with me so if ur doc brought up one of those meds, u would know about
them! r u seeing this same np? or ur doctor, lik the regular one? i would just tell him how much pain ur in on a daily basis and just stress that its not ok, and u need some relief, that they need to help u! if they say the same thing about
not uping the oxy cuz of the other med, just say thats fine, but is there another med that would work and not hav those risks? Just be honest, tell them this is not working, and that u guys need to do something else... thats what i did in my situation i didnt ask for any specific things, cuz the doc will kno the best route to take, and u never want to give them any reason to be suspicious! do u keep a pain diary? if u do take it and show them how its not workiing and how hard it is to function in that much pain and that u really need some relief! if not i would definately start one, its always good for patterns, to show to ur pain doc, for things lik med changes and doses and just all other things! good luck and really i think if ur honest and tell them how much u hurt and how much something needs to be done they will help u! it is their job! let us kno how it all turns out and i wish u luck!
