Well I had my First Appointment with my Pain Management Clinic today. I saw the Nurse Practitioner. I really like her. She listened to me, did not Judge me and Took me at my Word. She asked me for my opinion and respected it. It was a very nice visit though very long.
The visit took 2 Hours! Things were going numb by the time we finished and she picked up on all the ques of the pain before I could even voice them! Excellent visit.
So She is going to try me on a General Cortisone Pack to try and reduce some of the Swelling in the Tissue near where the surgery was done. She has Prescribed Neurontin and also NUCYNTA. She has told me to try it only at night for now. And continue with the Vicodin during the day time until I can find out how I react.
So I know Nucynta is a new medication, I have seen some very good reviews on it, and some people say it did not work well, though it does not seem as if they gave it enough time to work. It seems it works right out of the Bottle but works better the longer you take it.
Iam apprehensive about starting 3 new medications all at once , especially since I will need to start HRT asap as well. So Thoughts? Anyone tried it? On it? Love it ? Hate it? Spill the Beans Ladies and Gents
