Good morning Worthit!
I don't think there is any guarantee that a Dr will continue the same med's previously script
ed by a former PCD, and it certainly would be a worry, so I sympathize with you on this. I'm quite surprised that your PCD only looked at your feet after much complaining by you. Rather odd to say the least!
I was wondering how many Lortab you are taking a day? Also,... I understand walking would be painful from what you describe, but are you still experiencing the same pain when your off your feet? One thing I might caution you on, is that if you believe that you may be having surgery anytime soon….I think it may be wise to stay on the lowest dose of pain med's possible. It may help you during post-opp pain med treatment. I went into surgery on a rather high dose of med's, and had a very rough time afterwards, and now believe it was due to the tolerance issue.
Hopefully, your new PCD will be compassionate about
your suffering, and get you on a med that will be more effective for you.
