well, I finally found a pm dr. I saw her today. she gave me a good once over and boy was i hurting afterwards, but it was worth it. I'm so sore tonight. She did a tox screen and said when it gets back, she'll be prescribing me something stronger. She asked me how well the Kadian had worked when I took it in the past. I told her it worked really well, so I think the Kadian will be what I get.
She gave me a week's worth of Percocet. I was taking just the 5mg of Oxycodone twice a day and she put me on 5mg Oxycodone with 325mg acetaminophen, which is Percocent three times a day. She gave me a week's worth. She also gave me Neurontin to take three times a day eventually by titrating it up every three days.(one capsule at bedtime for three days. one capsule twice a day for three days, and then 1 capsule three times a day from then on. I had told her that I got stabbing pains all of a sudden in my back and that's why she gave me that. She also gave me a pack of prednisone to take for 6 days. I sure will be glad when she gets that tox screen back and prescribes me the stronger meds.
The only thing about this dr. is that she'll treat me with the pain meds until I'm stable and then she'll ask my pcp to take over the prescribing of the pain meds. I sure do hope that she'll do it. I thought that I had nothing to lose that at least I would get to be stable at least. I'm being positive that everything will work out. I'm also going to the (well my mind just went blank). It's the place that does heat, ice, exercise, etc. anyway, she said that was a good idea.
I sure hope this works out. I'm very tired of being in so much pain all the time. If it doesn't then I don't know what I'll do. Please say a prayer that it works out for me.
