I have my normal 4-6 week follow up with my physiatrist. After being on the butrans patch for 2 months and then 1 week in Florida, and 2 weeks with my Thai Guru Deep Tissue person, I am feeling better and better.
For the first time in almost a year, I have been getting by with 3 Oxycodone 5mg day. That is good, before it could have been 4 to 8 a day. So I am real happy.
My physiatrist wrote a new script that decreases my monthly amount from 180 to 90. This is the goal and objective we both have been waiting for.
I've had my surgeries, , my joints (shoulder/hips) have been replaced, so hopefully no surgery in the short term.
My next objective is to get down to 2 pills a day
At that point, my doctor and I will have to figure out what will be the longer term plan...
But for now, I am real excited.
