Well, it sounds like a mixed bag - not great pain control but could be worse - ? Maybe that's all we can hope for these days...and it shouldn't be that way!! But since it is, you're right - we have to make do because we can't change the way things are
It does seem beyond the pale, though, that the pharmacy wouldn't give you the whole amount the prescript
ion dictated. I really don't get that one! I didn't know they could do that.
Did the surgeon say he thought the surgery was a success? I always get frustrated that they don't tell you more....
I'm not doing too badly here except that I kicked an empty aluminum pan along the rug for a few feet to get it to someone who could pick it up for me (to avoid hurting myself by using my reacher to lift it) and now my Sciatic pain is all fired up and both feet are giving me painful cramps. In other words, same old!
Have a good night.
Fibromyalgia for 34 years, 2 largely-failed discectomies (L4-L5 and L5-S1) with lots of nerve damage, because I have one whole lotta pain in my butt, legs and feet! IBS, migraine, dizziness, and major hearing loss.
