My oxycontin supply is down to one pill.  my PM doc wasnt counting on me to take my oxy 3 times a day when I was in for my appt.  After 4 days passed from appt with pm doc she upped my amount of oxy per day.  the script i got fromher has on it that i cant get it illed until july 6,2011.  Tuesday I will be without my oxy....I will call at 8:00 am on tuesday the pm doc. to get more oxy on tuesday.
 
I feel miserable, knee is throbbing and tibia has a gnawing deep pain.

Sorry to hear that you are having more pain even with the Oxycontin increase:(...

I had assumed that when she raised your dosage back on the 28th that you were counting ahead with taking 3 instead of 2 and would run out early so you had talked with her to get a new prescription last week to fill tomorrow......so that's why I didn't mention anything...sorry about that!.

Hopefully she will quickly write up a new prescription to be picked up and filled tomorrow...

I can only suggest trying to use all your other modalities to help with your pain as our meds can only do so much...But try to rest up, keep your knee elevated...alternate ice/heat....

I'm so glad you have your other appt. moved all the way up from Nov. to this month...

Sending you some hugs (( ))

I called my PM doc...she isnt in the office yet, but as soon as she arrives the secretary will get her to write a new script for my oxy 3 times a day and they will call me to let me know that it is ready to be picked up.

i called the knee doc about does he have any cancellations in his schedule before the 26th of july and i was told no openings have occured and that he is off on the 19th and he is packed from being off for a week last week. So I will have to wait 3 weeks to see him.

I have a PT appt on wednesday and that will begin my therapy appts for 3 weeks. I will talk to therapist about why only 3 weeks?

Today the cleaning lady is coming in to give me an estimate to clean my 4 rooms. I hope she can work with my budget.

I will let you know how things go as far as the script and the cleaning lady.

Thanks for the update...Hopefully you can get that prescription filled later on today to get some relief...

I think we had discussed on your other thread for your knee, that 3 weeks is a usually standard for PT to get you started and they will show you how to do most things at home and in a pool.

Most people continue their own PT at home to continue to rehabilitate their injury and strengthen the muscles back up...That's why we had asked whether you had access to a pool as that would be the best way to help your knee when they show you what exercises to do...

Still praying for an opening to see your Dr. before the end of July...

       Morning Betsey!
 
           Sounds like you're doing a bit better....and were glad to hear that! wink   Do you normally take an Oxycontin at those hrs? 3:45am or so? I know your taking it three times a day now, but thought it odd that you would take it at 3:34am....or did you do like me and miss you're evening dose? shakehead   I wake up all the time, and have to fight taking a dose in the early mornings...as I keep a strict schedule. If I cheat it a little, I will pay dearly for it later.
 
    It soulds like you are getting out and about now....so are you driving as well? ....if so, than I would say you are doing much better....and that puts a smile on our faces! smilewinkgrin
 
       I bet you have a lovely home and the new house keeper appreciates it. I know your picky about your house, so I can't imagine it being too bad. Come on over to our house, and see the tornado kids mess! shakehead
 
      Take care, and keep us updated on you're PT today please. Good luck!

I went to Pt today...she took measurements before we got started and the measurements nwere worse now than when i stopped therapy in March. She is trying to loosen up my muscles on both legs. Gosh i hurt so bad when I was done I could barely make it to the car.
I drive myself with no problem.

I want to go out for dinner tonight. i cant start supper the way i feel.

Next week the housekeeper comes. yeaaaa!!

Hi SE...Thanks for worrying about me.....I have been remiss in posting and i apoligize for not posting.

Therapy has been rough on me...she is trying to loosen my quad muscles because they atrophied...great!
When I leave therapy I hurt so bad and I drive straight home and take a vicadin and go to bed and sleep for hours.
When I get awake I dont turn on the computer , or tv..just listen to music.

I have been really out of sorts since PT started...pain has been down to a 6 and up to an 8.

I have showed up on chat for a short time this week off and on.

Slightly depressed, but par for the course....pain equals depression...happens..lol

…sorry dear!….but I bet it will help in the long run. I'm sure it will be rough for a while….we need to use the muscles we have and keep them loose as possible.

Hang in there, and I understand, not wanting to do much of anything..when your hurting like that. Let us know how the house cleaner does when that happens too. That should be a blessing!

Take care, and we hope you have better days ahead! SEE..you were missed!

I got awake at 3:15 am today. I could barely walk with my walker to the powder room. I took care of matters there ,so to say,and hobbiled into living room and took a oxy and vicadin. I logged onto HWF and logged unto chat on CP. Waited and waited and Livingwell stopped by for a quick visit. that was nice.

My tummy had issues this morning, so I ate a little icecream. that helped. I dozed off for an hour.

I will call PM doc today to check with the staff to see if i need a med change because vicadin supply is low and appt with them is on 8-25.

My w /c check is 2 days late in arriving, hope it comes today.Hope this isnt an indication that w/c stopped paying everything. Just wait to see what happens today.

Pt is sch today at 3:30 pm today. Late afternoon appts make me very weak. Wed and Friday my appts are at 8:00 am That is good.

Pt was horrible yesterday and i cried like a baby when i exercised my knee. Stabbing pain and I quit the ecercise ...I just couldnt continue that exercise.

No housecleaner yet. She had to reschedule to a later date so now I wait for that.

No w/c check yet. I go to a pretrial hearing before a w/c judge this afternoon in the state capital. I was told to war a skirt and let the lawyer push me in my wheelchair into the court room. i am apprehensive, hands are sweaty. This is to set a date for a hearing to see if I need a stair chairlift and a caregiver all paid by w/c.

On top of everything i am the executrix of my father in laws estate. An insurance company sent a letter stating that there is a large amount of money in the policy and my husband is the beneficiary. So I had to go to our county courthouse today and get a short certicate to prove that I am the executrix and the two death certificates which went very smoothly from an internet company...I got the certicates in 7 business days and it has been 6 weeks thru the funeral home..they are going thru vital records to but i got my request very fast completed. I will see how long it takes to get the money fromthe insurance company.

The city where we live told us that before they repave the road we have to redo our curbing and cement sidewalk.
So when the insurance money comes then we can get our sidewalk done.

It is always something. It is never easy is it?

Sadly Betsey, there is always something. Sometimes I think that every time there is a little extra money, something hears it, like the car, or the house, and finds a way to spend it. I am hoping that you get through the w/c hearing as smoothly as possible, the checks come with no issues, and that your therapy begins to help soon.

I am sorry you are having such a rough time. Apprehension about a hearing is normal, because it can make things easier or harder and we don't know the outcome. Try to relax as much as you can.

I hope that housekeeper comes soon!
Take care,
Mindy

The hearing...lawyer called me while I sat in the parking lot with air conditioner running...he told me that he was 50 minutes away and was going to be late. He said he would call the judge to tell him that he was running late. He never asked me if it was ok or how I was feeling. That ticked me off. The longer i waited in that car the bigger my lower leg swelled and intense pain from toes to upper thigh. I called law office and told them that i couldnt wait any longer because i wouldnt be able to drive myself back home. They told me to go home and take care of myself. So after 29 minutes on the road the lawyer that was running late called me and he told me that he knew that I was going home. He said that it was ok . I wasnt going to testify today.

I understand that the hearing went well so that is good. I came home and took a water pill, oxy,and a vicadin and elevated the leg on a bed pillow. Gosh I was miserable. I cant sit in a car with my leg down more than 40 min then it swells.

So sorry, that you were in so much pain yesterday. At least the hearing went well, although it would have been nice for the judge to actually see the pain you were being put thru.

Yesterday, after I was dc'd from the ER in the middle of the night, I had to take my son to "that" airport we had discussed. It was pandimonium there in terminal C. I was offered a wheelchair, but would have gotten stuck after I got my son on the plane. On the phone they told us that we could bring the family to the gate, then changed the story to only 1 family member due to being very busy. Since I couldnt chase my grandson in the baggage area for 2 hours I was voted the best suited to escort my son to the gait.

Glad your hubby made a good dinner for you! Hope today finds you feeling better!

Shell Thanks for checking up on me

I had a sleepless night on wednesday so as you can see I got up at 3:00am and started in chaat room and then posted. My pain is a 7...I will call pm doc today to see if I can up my oxy to 4 a day instead of 3 a day with vicadin for BT. I will post when I hear from them.

i have to take the truck in for inspection at 7:45 am today. I hope I can get in and out of it ok.

Glad to hear that you saw your son off but I bet you were exhausted when you got home since you were in the ER.

Well here it is at 3:00 am Sat morning...PT yesterday went well and pain was at a 7 and I walked in with a cane..Therapist was impressed. Therapy is 3 times a week.

I am still fighting with the code enforcer of our town ..I was told I need 60 ft of curb and a small section of cement sidewalk redone because the town is going to repave our street. The code officer chnged his mind and now wants me to replace 60 ft of sidewalk now. All due to construction foreman working next door on neighbors sidewalk and he saw me getting an estimate from another conractor and then the forum called the code officer and he came over and the 2 of them were talking andI hobbled out in the middle of it. I dont know why i have to get curbing and sidewalk when a house 2 doors away ...he doesnt have curbing and he needs 90 ft of curbing and sidewalk replaced but noooo,he doesnt have to get his done...something is fishy and I will get to the bottom of this.

Stress does increase your pain...i am a true example of that statement...lol

Hi Betsey I'm glad that your pt is going well. That's very good to hear.

As far as that curb and sidewalk, that does sound fishy when one of your neighbors doesn't have to replace his. You go get em girl. I know you will get to the bottom of this. It's not fair.

Try to keep your stress down sweetie (((((((((hugs)))))))) I hope you get your pain down and can get some sleep.

love and hugs

Monday morning and I amm awake at 3:50 am EST. I am sick and tired of getting awake so early.

I will stop by pain clinic today after therapy since I hobble by it to get out of the facility.I want something for sleepliness.

My w/c hearing is scheduled 8-10-11. My appt with head doctor of pm clinic was 8-30-11. My lawyer was to get his depositionb for the trial. So now I need to call lawyer to see to see if I should keep the appt on 8-30-11 or cancel it. It is after the fact but maybe I should keep it until after the trial so the judge would know that I do have an appt with the head owner of the pm clinic.

Today I will call the concrete quarry that poured concrete on my neighbors sidewalk and curbs. i want to find out if that concrete is strong enough per squuare inch for strengh ..It needs to be 4000psi so i will find out and then if it is ledd then I report the conxtruction worker who did my neighbors walk . that owner of construction firm is dictating to code officer what has to be done on whos properties. i wont stand for that.

Yesterday I drove around neighborhood looking for curbs that were higher than sidewalk and I found several throughout a 3 block area.and i took pictures. I wont rest until I get to the bottom of this.

Betsey, I should probably set my alarm for 4 am to meet you in chat. i wake up at 5 and just toss and turn. If I got up an hour earlier, takes my am meds, I could talk for a bit and then go back to bed for a bit,lol.

Sorry, about this mess with the curbs. Something about living in a small town and favortism. We have a neighbor 2 doors down that was allowed to vent a pellet stove right into the front door of the neighbor inbetween. Now, we were told we need to vent 20 feet above our top roof line according to code.

I hope PT went well for you this morning!

Big hugs,

Shell...that would be wonderful to chat with you until meds work. Thanks for offering that.

I called concrete quarry and got the scoop on what strength the construction foreman usually uses and I was told 35oo strength, so it is below code. It needs to be 4000 psi, so i left a message for code officer to call me today.
none of my neighbors have a written estimate from that contractor ands i was never able to get a written contract from him either. Everything was verbal with no specs on strenght of concrete.

I am going after that guy and it is giving me great pleasure.

Betsey I don't understand why the homeowners are having to pay for sidewalks and curbs. Are there curbs and sidewalks already there? Concrete is very expensive and that is crazy to expect homeowners to bear this expense. They tore our old street up and completely rebuilt our street a few years ago. The curbs and walks were paid for by the city not the homeowners.

Hang in there on the PT, its always rough in the beginning but it will get better as time goes by. I had bad atrophy after one of my knee surgeries. My knee dr was real big on his patients riding a stationary bike every day, I hated it, lol, still do. But, that and the weights is what built the muscle back up in my leg. I have since had two more surgeries on that knee and have atrophy again from not having PT ordered.

Take care and I hope your pain starts slacking off.

......in the small city I used to live in, the city put it in the first time, and then we were responsible for the maintance of it. If it needed replaced it was our responsibility. I'm sure it differs from city to city, and bare in mind the specials, in which the home owner actually pays for it the first time around anyway. Could be that it was curb and paving, but the sidewalks seemed to be a part of it too.
 
 The more I think about it the less Im sure now! LOL....I suppose you need to call the city and find out.

Many many years ago the town placed curbing in front of our house and the town paid for it. Now the town wants to repave the road in front of our house but our curbing and sidewalk is fine there. Then now the town says they are going to repave the street to the side of our house. We have curbing and sidewalk halfway down to our 3 car garage, but we do have just sidewalk halfway up and to the road in front of our house but no curbs. The sidewalk has a section of 22 feet that was uprooted by a tree root and that needss redone but zoning dude wants us to redo the remaing 38 feet of sidewalk. i called and left a message for him to call me back but he didnt return my call yesterday.

I want to place a 2foot path of soil and plantings to soak up water as it runs off the house...we have that in front of the house.

My husband baited a mouse trap that once they go in they never come out of the black round house. I will see today if we had an overnight visitor. We had to get one ofthat type of trap because of my doggies.. They are to inquisitive.

I am up once again at 3:30 am EST with numb hands and a knee that is throbbing. So Im up and I took my pain meds.

I am headed to chat room so if anyone wants to join me come on over for a short while.
