I thought I would give you all an update. I'm sorry I haven't been posting except to support. The 16th and 18th were the birthdays of two of our babies that I lost during pregnancy. It has been a tough month with Mother's Day being this month also.
As far as my pain goes, I asked the doctor to change me from Percosets to regular Oxycodone because my liver enzymes tend to be high. Well, the oxycodone isn't working as well as the Percoset did. I go see my PM doctor on June 1 and I'm going to talk to her about increasing the oxycodone or put me on another medication. The patches are doing really good. I've had problems getting them to stick and I bought some tegaderm things to put over them. The only thing about that is that the tegaderm irritates my skin and it itches, but I think it's a small price to pay to have so much pain relief. Today the sun is shining thank goodness. When the weather is bad, my pain really acts up. I'm sure you're all familiar with that.
Well, I'll go for now. I hope everyone is having a lpd.
