What I week I had. SAturday before last, was in terrible pain. 15mg oxy ir working for about 2 hour max. Oxycodone 30mg er working as minimal as I believe it could. All the time. This had been going on for over 2- almost 3 weeks. Well SAt before last pain was so bad my BP was 226/110 and took again few min later same 219/116 and so on. Went to ER cause I could feel my heart beat on my temples and throat. ER asked me to sign in and have a seat,bout 25 min later thye called me back to take vitals and read my reason for visit. Needles to say they saw my BP readings and took me back right away. Well after being asked what I take. ? comes up. "Sir have you done any cocaine tonight cause it will come up on our drug screen." I said take care of my pain and Bp please. I was put on IV blood was taken out every so often. Dr. on ER came in said we will keep you overnit to get Bp under control. No mention of my back. I mentioned this a recurring cycle. PAin shoots up, Bp shoots up. Well next day Sunday, still more bloodwork, DOc say we going to do stress test. Check to see if your heart had any damage. And will order MRI and see whats going on. Well all day Sun no action just blood work. Mon was taked to Nuclear Meds to see heart stress test. Also Went to mri. I was actually shocked in MRI machine, Have any of you ever felt that. Tech tried 3 diferant times and all 3 x's I was shoked so they stopped that. Tues DOc comes in tells me he is sending a cardiologist cause stres test came back positive. Left side of heart not working. correctly. That night Cardio doc says I need an angio procedure to unblock.
Thought bout it for about 2 hours then agreed to. In mean time was sent back down for second attempt for MRI. this time no issues. Wednesday had angio performed, recouped well. ANd then docs says I need to see neurosergeon. I have massive D.D.D. and arthritis. No disc at L-1-2 L2-3 L3-4 and at L2 Level my stenosis is pressing completly at my nerve which could explain so much pain, Since had angio that day would not be able to perform surgery at this time. Would have to wait for out patiant consult. Was discharged THursday afternoon. WHat made me mad was when neuro doc came in my roem. HE came in with his mind made up about me wothout had talked to me yet. He said narcotics would kill me. That they killed! But wait before he got to that comment, his words when he walked in my room were. YOUr BacK IS TERRIBLE, BACK OF A 70 year old man and im 34. THen he proceeded with I need to find other ways. NArcs would kill me all though Pain so severe cause Bp to shoot thru roof. When he said that it completly turned me off and besides he said nothing I hadnt heard before. So now they got me on more meds and strrong BP meds as well to keep that controlled. SOrry needed to vent and see if Im crazy or is this surgeon a well you decide.
