I'm not new to this forum. I am usually on the back pain site. But this is a different type of a problem for me. I didn't know where to go with this issue.
I had a failed fusion l4-5,s-1 four yrs. ago. My left leg gets numb and long story short I fall alot. I have damaged my knees especially my right one just struggling to crawl into and out of my car. No, it's not a sports car, just a Toyota sedan. I just had surgery on my right knee a month ago.
My meds include fentanyl patch and norco 10/325 four x day. They were increased when I had the knee surgery, Well, today I found out that my significant other has been taking my pills to take herself and to sell. We have been together 20 yrs. and I am on disability. I can't make it alone, but I feel like throwing her out of the house. How can you steal pain meds from someone who really needs them?
I was wondering if anyone else has ever had this problem and what they did about it. I don't know what to do. Right now they are locked in my car and I have the key under my pillow when I sleep. I'd really like some advice short of calling the police. Then I am alot poorer and have no-one to help me. I think she has a drug problem.
