So I had the 2 level laminectomy last monday. Released on Wendesday and am in real pain. For 2 months before the Lamy I had been on 7.5/500 vicodin and was getting immune to it. The pain Dr was concidering a fentenyl patch due to this. So after all the shots etc I had decided to go ahead with the surgery. The pain Dr sent my records to the surgeon and he does the surgery. (He is the same one that did my neck last year). After surgery he has me on a coctail of pain meds while in the hospital of 2-5/500 vicodin then a shot of morhpine if needed and demeral if needed (the last 2 were intra-muscular shots)and that kept the pain manageable while in the hospital. Then he sends me home with a 2 week prescription of 5/500 vicodin enough to take ONE every 6 hours and Robaxin. That's it! Going from the months of 7.5 and then the coctail and then to be cut to 1 5/500 every 6 hours is not going to even touch the pain. I called the Dr office to see if I could get this changed and was told by his PA that that is alot of medicine and I should take an Aleve. I asked if she even knew my medical history (gastric bypass in 2009) and that I can't take Aleve. I have a follow up on the 14th and the Dr is going to get an ear full. If he is forbiden to prescribe more then he could at least have called in the Pain Management Dr to consult and prescribe enough pain medicine. Sorry for the rant but I am pissed off right now.
