Hey Jim1969, makes you wonder doesnt it? I mean sometimes I think the thing to do is work it so they think its there idea and then it makes it alright.
You know its funny, not ha ha funny, but the kind where you say to yourself, ok if this is the way its going to work, then we can pretend its your (the doctor) idea.
I guess the main issue is, you at least got what you need to make it as painless as possible all day. I am having trouble getting to make my meds last the 30 days they are supposed to. Some days I feel great and dont have any trouble staying on the routine of meds I have been given. Then there are the days when I can barely move, where everything hurts so much, it hurts to breath.
The trouble is there are more days that are days I can hardly move unless I increase my medication on my own. Then by the last 5-6 days before I am due back at my pm doc, the struggle becomes an awful battle within. If I try to take enough not to hurt so much, I will run out totally and begin withdrawal. I will not go thru that nightmare again in life if at all possible.
Enough, I will be hoping you will have low pain days, and more and more and more low pain days.
