I'm a 26 year old stay at home mom with two toddlers. I had an anterior cervical discetomoy (fusion) of C5 -C7.
I've been on oxycodone for two years. My doctor has refilled me in the past. I've been up & down on my doses.
I had an issue with my pain management doctor's nurse 3 months ago when I asked to refill 2 weeks early due to a flare up. The nurse said my doc refilled me early in the past & wasn't willing to do it again. However, he saw me in the office 4 days later because I was withdrawing, told me he never got my refill request/message & that his staff is trained to say that due to the scrutiny that pain management doctors are under. He bumped me up from oxy 10 mgs 5 times a day to roxi 15 4x a day. He told me I have to follow the contract. I thanked him and I have followed his orders exactly.
Three weeks ago I had a gallbladder attack & had to go to the ER. I was prescribed lortab & called the doctors office the next day notifying them what was prescribed to me that my husband filled for me. I asked them what to do as he already filled it. They told me not to take the medicine as my roxi is stronger so I haven't. I've been very "by the books" since that nurse treated me like a druggy.
I was at Mcdonalds tonight & changed my son on the changing table. He knocked over my purse & nearly the entire contents of the bag fell out. This lady helped me pick all of my stuff up. It wasn't until 3 hours later that I realized that my JC Penney card was missing & my nearly months worth of roxi bottle was not in my purse. I called McDonalds & they checked the bathroom & found nothing. I filed a police report over phone a hour ago.
Should I call my doctor tomorrow & let them know what happened? I was thinking of explaining the situation & giving them my case # & asking what I do for my pain until my next refill on Jan 6th. I've been trying to lay low since that incident 3 months ago. I legitimately have pain & have no idea what I'm going to do until January 6th. I don't want them to discontinue my care for losing my medicine. I still have that lortab from two weeks ago but I don't want to violate my contract either. Should I ask them if I can take that since my medicine is missing?
