Its just a fleeting thought, but your dr may be thinking if she is wanting to have a baby, maybe she is not hurting as bad as she is telling me. He knows if you get pg you cannot take pain meds, it takes alot of energy and a person feeling good to have and take care of a baby. These may be things he is looking at. Susie

Gramps I understand fully what J Rene is saying. It is very difficult sometimes impossible to find a good team of drs who do care. Alot depends on your location and just what is available in your area, how far you can travel, ect.

I have left the big city drs and now ALL of my specialists are in this small town 30 miles from my home. These guys actualy communicate with each other. Susie

Hey J_Rene,

If you have enough pain to be taking OxyContin, Percocet, etc..., you have no idea how bad you are going to feel getting off all narcotics so you can have a baby.  With back and leg pain, and fibromyalgia (pain all over) now, while you are on very strong Narcotics, increasing your activity while going off the meds, is very likely to reduce your ablility to do much of anything of a physical nature, and respectively increase your pain.  I know you want a baby.  I wanted several, but with my chronic migraines and severe back and knee pain, I have come to realize that I can barely take care of myself.  Although I might physically be able to have a baby, I certainly would not be able to provide the care a child deserves.  That's not fair to the child.  Taking the medication you do, it might seem like a possibility to have a child.  I doubt you will still feel that way if you stop all your pain meds.  I only wish I had doctors that would provide me with adequate pain relief and pain meds you are rejecting.  Let me know what you think.
