Its a little, but tomorrow Wed.5/4/11, I have an appointment with my pm Doc.  I will be requesting an increase in my pain meds.  It has been over 3 years that i have been on the same meds.  They did the job for the most  part, we all know there will always be pain. 
 
I am not doing well which i know is i know have additional aches and pains that were not there 3 years. Although my pm doc seems to be a very compassionate man, a few prayers go a long way. I would truly be grateful for all prayers and blessings i can get, as you just never know.  I will let all know tomorrow how it goes. With all your help I am sure its going to be ok. Hoping all are having very low pain, and gentle hugs to all.

It's late here but, I wanted to post a quick "Good Luck" to you NiNi53!

One of the best ways to approach a PM with a needed pain med adjustment, is to let him know that your current med's are not getting the job done anymore, and then let "Him" recommend the adjustment needed.

We hope all goes well, and of course "prayers" to you!


Take care, and we will be here waiting on the results of your meeting with him.

Good Luck today

I will pray for you. You will do just fine. Tell the doc that your current pain meds arent working for you. Drop the ball in his court so to say.

Lets us know how you made out.

Soft Hugs
