Sorry I haven't been around in so long. I took a break from the board and thought I would come back now and do an update. I saw the pain management doctor at RehabNY. She put me on the Fentanyl patches 25mcg. and I was on oxycodone just twice a day and it was increased to three times a day. That wasn't doing the job, so she increased the patches to 50mcg. and the oxycodone ended up being increased to four times a day sometime during that time. Well, I was stable on those two, so the doctor called my primary doctor and sent her the orders and now I'm getting my pain meds from my primary care doctor. I am finally where I need to be. Of course, as you all know, the pain does bust thru at different times, but for the most part the pain is pretty manageable.
I've gotta catch up on everyone. I was just reading about Tina going to go in for the c-sexction. I didn't know that she was almost at the end of her pregnancy with the girls. i also didn't know that the little punkins were girls. I am now waiting on pins and needles to hear about Tina and the twinkies. That's so cute. Please let us know as soon as you hear something Stac.
Well, I'm hurtin'. I guess it's time to get off here and take some pain medication. I hope you all are having a lpn. God bless you all.
