I have been taking Roxicodone 30mg for six months, 4 per day. Before that I was on 15mg Roxicodone for a year, 3 per day. My OBGYN prescribed this medication for severe endometriosis, pelvic lesions, Menorrhagia, and other adhesions caused by the Endo. My OBGYN was harping on me for years to get a hysterectomy but I did not want to because I felt I was to young and I was also scared of what symptoms I may experience due to the hysterectomy. Finally, I agreed to go through the hysterectomy because the pain became unbearable. Not only while I was menstruating but almost daily (pelvic pain, bowel pain, pain during intercourse, etc.). I was basically almost always uncomfortable. Two weeks ago I went in for surgery to get the hysterectomy. I had a complete robotic assisted hysterectomy and was suppose to be able to be released that day. When I woke up in recovery I was in unbearable pain and the nurses could not get it under control. I soon that I was being admitted because the extent of the Endometriosis, and adhesions were much worse than the Surgeon had expected and they needed to admit me to keep the pain under control. I also was told that although I had requested to keep my left ovary(so I was not thrown in to immediate menopause) the surgeon was not able to do so because the Endometriosis basically destroyed all of my female organs.
So now the part where I need help. My surgeon sent me home with a two week prescription of 30 MG Roxicodone(6x per day) and told me that he was going to send my OBGYN the report and note in there that I would still need pain management because recovery could take up to a year and then I would need weaned off the Roxicodone. I was to also see him in two weeks for a post op visit. I went in for the visit and was told he had not yet sent over the report. Mind you, my OBGYN would not prescribe my normal prescribed medication without this report. He told me he would send it when he got to it. I asked him if he could prescribe me enough to get me through until my OBGYN could see me. HE said," loo here I am not going to be your new pain management doctor". I told them I understood that and did not expect him to but, I am still in pain and my OBGYN will not write my prescription without the report. He left the room and his nurse came back with 3 number to pain management doctors (2 didn't accept my insurance and the other wasn't accepting new patients) but no prescription. Right away I called my OBGYN and explained the situation. She had her nurse call me back to tell me that she isn't going to write it without the report. I called my surgeon the following day to see about this report only to find that he would not be in his office until Tuesday(today is Friday). I called around to find out what I could do and I was advised to call the department head. She told me the report was sent over to my OBGYN twice. I called my OBGYN and told them. They admitted to having it and told me they would let me know what my OBGYN decide. Finally at 4pm I got a call from my OBGYN herself and she said" YOU NO LONGER HAVE FEMALE ORGANS SO YOU CAN NOT POSSIBLY EXPERIENCING ANY PAIN". She also told me she did not feel comfortable prescribing me them anymore and is unsure how to wean a patient off the medication because she is unfamiliar with it . Therefore so she didn't feel comfortable doing that either. She said she was sorry and did not know what to tell me and apologized for not having answers, I am unsure what to do and I feel like I was tossed to the curb with no hope. I am still in pain and will soon be experiencing withdrawal on top of that. I want to note that I am from New York State. I am also now on temporary disability( half of my regular income) due to this surgery therefor I do not have the money to hire an attorney. If anyone has any advice please, please can you help.
