Data Entry Job – SCAM!

2 Ruptured Discs Pain Meds
I'm currently on MC Contin 30 mg every 12 hours, NORCO 10/325 3x's daily as needed for breakthrough pain, Neurontin 300 mg every night for nerve pain, Ambien 10 mg at bedtime to sleep, and MOTRIN 800 mg every 6 hours.
My first appontment was a few weeks ago following my dicsogram after my unsuccessful discectomy in Dec. 2008
I have 2 ruptured discs at L4/5 and S1 and am seeing a PM doctor. My next appointment isn't until the end of this month. My pain contract specifically says not to call them if I think I need an increase in pain meds, and to keep my appointment as scheduled. In it (the contract) it also stated that if I call they have the right to cancel me as their patient. I'm sure they are just covering their butts, however, I would like to know "about" what other people are taking as in dosages for similar pain. My pain is lower back, both hips, buttocks, legs, with drop foot in left. I have an ALIF scheduled for June, and I'm not sure I can keep going on what I "feel" as far as pain even after all this crap I'm taking. If you feel comfortable about sharing your treatment plan, PLEASE do! I don't want to call and complain about the tiny 30 mg dose of morphine if that's high end stuff.
