On July 1st I had from my t10 to s1 fused with multiple laminectomies and I am dealing with this injury from work and my workmens comp nurse case manager had called me an addict due to the amount of medication that the hospital had a prescribed to me. And I went to get my very first set of refills on all of the meds. Im on some strong meds but I have a family history of people abusing medication which any doctor I talk to I let them.know my fears about it happening to me. I worry about it so much that I will with my wife set a alarm schedule for each medication for when it is prescribed for me to take to go off so that way im not just going ok I hurt real bad I should take a pill. But when she said this to me its suck in my head that I may be addicted to the pills. I have been on workmens comp for 3 years now and from my injury I had to have from my c3-c6 fused and the this year like I said from t10-s1 fused with multiple laminectomy is and a bunch more done because I was born with scoliosis and I had two back surgeries when I was a kid. I was never on meds for the pain my whole life which I would be in from time to time but I just dealt with it. As a kid I had a very severe curvature and my lumbar region I believe at the beginning it was at a 80-85 degree curvature. To where it was. Surgery or be bent over in a wheelchair my whole life. I would like to know if there is anyone who has had a similar surgery as I and if so how long were you on your meds for. I mean I do physical therapy every day two to three times a day. Plus I have my family I try to help out.with as much as I can even though its very little. But I dont know the meds do scary me and all my doctors.know it but at the same time im being told if you cant control the pain then your body won't heal properly. I just don't know what to think because of what the nurse case manager had said. My wife and believe Im not because im so cautious and sometimes I wont even take the amount Im supposed to and just deal with how much pain im in. if anyone can give me advice or help out I would very much appreciate it thank you for taking the time to read this and maybe give me some help or guidance.
