In the last month, I've had increasing back pain that the Darvocet hasn't touched, so Friday when I went for my 4month post-op fusion checkup, he gave me a predinsone pack, and Vicodin, 1 tab every 4-6 hours..Max 4 a day.
I could just cry, my back hurts so freaggin bad, and I can't function.
Ortho surgeon doc said that going to a PM isn't necessary.
I called his nurse this morning, and told her their weekend on call doc had told me to up my Vicodin to 2 tabs every 4 hours.
I just want someone to listen to my needs, and not think I'm a freaggin crackhead because lying on the heating pad ALL DAY isn't ok with me. I've had to "cancel life" many times, and I can't do it anymore..
Long post for a short question...lol, sorry...
So yeahhhhhhhhhhh, how do I have my ortho surgeon either a)change my meds, cause 8 vicodin is extreme, and there is other stuff out there that will help control pain, and not kill my liver as badly
b)send me to a PM (I LOVED the place I went before. They don't act like they're too busy for you, unlike the docs office)
Ok, I'll stop rambling. Thanks 8>
