After all those threads about pain medication and a lack of treatment.
Yesterday I ended up in the ER.....I have been having a great deal of Pain in my left ribcage area.I've been trying to ignore,hoping it would go away.Yesterday I couldn't stand it anmore so I went to the ER...They thought It was a kidney stone perhaps. To make a long story short and after urinalysis and x-rays, I have a fractured 9th rib. They can't do anything for this and they did not even give me pain meds. I didnt wanna ask and have it appear I was "seeking" I also told them i have the patch and some left over oxy's from the walk in clinic doc(see i Didn't take em all)! So they just said , use those. Trouble is, I have enough med for today, cant see the PCP till the 19th....what do I do in the mean time? This is very painful!
