I am so sorry to hear UR story. It just seems as though we who live in chronic pain have a lot more to deal with than we should due to those who abuse the system.
I once read in a article that pain drugs are so overrated. That the pain is all in our heads. Well my dr said quite the opposite yet he cannot help me.
I don't know what that means for pain or for addiction I cannot move with out pain meds. Managing my pain issues is like juggling elephants. Yet it's not worth the hassle the med industry has put so many including myself thru. I had a incident with asking for 3 pills from my hip joint surgeon before surgery, my pain meds were out. I told him I do have a pain contract & to contact my PCP AND I WILL TOO, I see my PCP in 3 days in another town the other side of the city my surgeon was located another 45 min drive one way.
This was a few yrs ago. My contract said to notify them ... To make a long story short. I was subjected to xyz..&... & humiliating treatment, blackballed from all pain clinics. I was told they do not give pain meds for hip joint bone on born pain.. Tell that to someone who had the other hip done years before. I was on pain meds then, it's excruciating to move or sleep without them... My surgeon was called out....then while waiting months for hip joint replacement bone on bone & necrosis....I had to rent a wheel chair. Now after 6 months the hip joint is recalled...yikes...no thanks but thanks.. I will test for issues from the Stryker ABGll hip system until necessary no revision as they must break the femur bone to remove the old implant the bone has grown around. The new replacement parts are much larger & my surgeon said due to my circumstances it may not be the best for me, as I could end up in a wheel chair for the rest of my days.
I am in pain constantly MRI.. nuclear cat scans & x- ray shows the damage from the new recalled hip joint. Yet they a forcing me to a redo rather than giving me a choice .... No pain meds are RX. That is how much pressure & havoc pain meds have created with my medical care.
Don't do surgery to replace the recalled hip then just suffer.
I find the whole thing no matter what the circumstances,has made us all feel dishonest with accusatory insinuations everywhere we turn. We constantly have to prove ourselves. It's finally come to this? In our days of pain where is the compassion?
I sincerely hope that UR situation with lost pills will come to a positive resolution.
