Not sure this is the correct board, Since I am now an official "nekie", I thought I'd start here.
I am 11 days post op acdf c5/6 with all the hardware. I was rx'd oxycod 5-325mg at my discharge from hospital. Directions were 1 or 2 every 4 hours. For the first week it was 2 every 4 hours. That last 1 1'2 wait was horrible. As the time went by I was able to take just 1 every 3-4 hours. Had my 1 week p/o last Friday. Surgeon told me to call a few days before I ran out for another rx. That was Friday, not realizing it was the weekend. So now on Monday I am out. I call for rx. Nothing happened. I call today leave a voicemail for his asst. at 8:00 a.m. Still nothing. I call back at 1:30 was told it can take up to 3 days for refill. I am welcome to leave voicemail for asst. No I think 1 message should be sufficient.
What am I supposed to do? Luckily I had a few Vicodin. But it doesn't help a whole lot. What I have will be gone this evening(I have 2 more ).
Has this happened to you?
What did you do?
What do they expect me to do. I know they would be sure them or thier loved ones would have the proper medication & enough.
Sorry to vent I am very frustrated & in pain.
