New PM Dr.

The last post I made was about how I lost my PM and had to go 2 weeks with no Pain Meds... Ok, this past Monday I went to another PM Clinic...was concerned about it being a "consultation" and not an actual appointment like the last place I went to. Since I was a "New Patient" I had to go through hoops and it took a long time. Then the UA, then finally called back. The nurse was kinda hateful but ok...Then the Dr. came in and Boy did I like him... He knew the PA that I had seen at my very last appt. at my last PM and said he Fired her for being confrontational with patients and disrespectful to him (Medical Director of PM)... I knew he was the ONE for me... Had Xrays, a CAT Scan and was told to make another appt. and they would have everything up front... Checking out was odd, all she gave me was a card....No Scripts... I thought "Here I go again"...but I asked her about it and she looked Pissed... But the Dr. just hadn't seen me again and hadn't given me my scripts yet... Ha Ha check out lady....So, I was taking 120 mg. Methadone daily along with 30 mg. Oxycodone 5 times daily before, but I only got Endocet 10/325 4 times a day.... The Tylenol upsets my stomach along with Mobic.... Hopefully I won't have to stay on these... I need something more for Long term pain with something for BT pain... But it is better then rolling around in bed crying...I think this Doc will really help me....Wish me luck guys and thanks for the thoughts and prayers.... It Really Helped.

Oh yeah, my mom, who hated me being on Methadone, told me that being discharged from last PM was a blessing in disguise.... I didn't believe her... I do Now...
