Will let you know how it goes this afternoon when I get home.

  • Had to give myself some coop time after that drive!!! So glad I don't live in the city,LOL!
    You can't take the country outta this girl!

    She was great!!!!! I really like her. Here's the plan....she's gonna ween me off hydracodone and she put me on ms contin 15mg to start x 2 a day and baclofen 10mg x3 a day. She is setting me up with a dr to have SCS removed and she's gonna schedule ESI for L-spine and I see her again in two weeks to adjust meds if needed and talk about further actions. I am an honest person when it comes to my drs and I let her know as I have all my drs that I smoke maryj for pain/nausea/sleep.. She told me more than half her patients do and she's all for it!! Thank God! Please don't judge me, I sit at home and use it for medicinal purposes, not partying!!
    I'd drink if I could, but with tummy and meds, I'm not going to, haven't had a drink in 7 years.
    Gotta rest now... Take care guys!
    Big hugs to all

  • That's amazing. Does she even do urine screens or pain contracts? Where I am is very strict and we would be tossed out for using marijuana even for medicinal purposes. Anyway, I'm glad your new doctor is helping you out finally. Take care
  • you really pulled the rabbit out of the hat with that dr...you deserve it
    by the way you should change your name to
    honest hollie
    do you want to run for president?
  • nah.. I said I'm honest!
    Yes there's a contract and pee test...maryj is the only thing she allows, and the only nonprescription i do, other than benedryl..she said even if I have to go to ER I'm only allowed to have a shot and no pills from anyone else except what my pcp gives me, Xanax and lexipro. I don't lie when it comes to this stuff cuz u get caught lying you might as well prepare to suffer, cuz then you're a liar and you'd never find a good dr to take u... Like if she had a problem with the smoking I'd find another dr... Or quit smoking... But thank God all my drs wish it was legal for them to give it to me, they all say they would if they could.
  • I'm still amazed because most doctor are conservative and ultra conservative when it comes to prescribing pain meds. The ones I know wouldn't even give an aspirin if they knew someone was smoking Maria Juanita. My pain clinic tests for everything under the sun, even alcohol. Believe me, I saw the long, long list while dropping off my specimen cup.
