I'm mildly upset. And I don't know where to turn to, to talk about this, I figure someone here can help me. I recently saw a pain management doctor (yesterday) and went through all the procedures that I've done/procedures that doctors are wanting to do to me soon. At the time I was taking medication Hydrocodone 750 1 pill daily. I was hoping he would have some insight to something I could do without medication.
What he wants to do and has done is put me on different medication. He took me off of the Hydrocodone, and put me on Morphine 15mg ER 1 twice daily am and pm. I don't want to be on this medication, but it seems I have no other choice. He says he doesn't want me to do anymore procedures considering my last one increased my pain. I am so upset having been put on another medication. I HATE the feeling I get on it. I can function normally, but I'm just in a haze. I want pain relief so bad, without the side effects. I'm really really upset right now. Is this what I need to do? Do I need to be on this for the rest of my life and discontinue procedures? Is this really the best idea?
I'm afraid of addiction. And I know that these pills can become habit forming. I just don't know what to do at this point. He's going to try something else on me, some injections in my lumbar area. So tell me, should I just let this happen? If I don't have any medication the pain is so strong and it makes me so limited. I'm sorry for this being so disorganized. They also want to put me on cymbalta but that'll be in time. IHATEMEDICATION. :[
