just aggrevation for when i am in that hard core pain. i clock watch as i call it. though i had the pump put in it, and it helps, this adjusting is aggrevating. i think if you can prove your pain you should be able to have the meds. i spent the entire night in the hospital with diverticulitis and the dr was almsot refusing to give me pain meds due to the fact i have a pump. i kept telling him it dosen't affect my stomach. he finally gave in to my whining and gave me some dilaudid. i offered to get my dr on the phone to explain how it works since he dosen't believe me.
as for the fda or dea or whoever is doing this i know for sure everyone in my drs office is cut down to 4 a day. i know someone who takes the same dosage oxycodone IR and she was knocked from 6 to 4 as well. its the buzz at the watercooler there.
i somedays feel like a lost cause. i weep for the beauty i don't see in things and can't do. but my voice has no opinion it seems. when did drs stop listening? i wish some pencil pushing fda/dea had my pain and could understand what its like. one day in my life. we cp'ers have other things too.... i suffer from constant diverticulitis as well as depression. as must of us have multiple issues. and my dr wants me to get checked for ms. i swear i don't want another dr treating me like i don't realize i am on a lot of pain meds and i can't be alllowed anything else. but celebrities get anything they want. how?
