My surgeon does not want me to drive on narcotics. While my pain doctors never said anything about not driving. I have to say that I don't get high from narcotics because my body adjusted to it a long time ago. Even now I take three Lortabs a day and I don't feel any side effects (not even constipation). I am adhering to my doctor's order right now, so I don't drive or work. I don't want to get him or myself in trouble.
My internist refused to give me more pain pills. I had to go find a pain doctor. Didn't even know such doctors existed until my internist refused to help me with me pain. Well...she is not my internist anymore.
