I had my monthly pm. appoint. Wed.
I had run my tolerance to hydrocodone up to high. And asked Doc. to try something else. So he went to Oxycontin. That took a high dosage also 40mg. HLC x 4 a day. I wasn't to thrilled with taking that drug to begin with. But I told him I found that it made me very tired and wasn't that good at pain control. And seemed to suck all of the life out of me. I've always been a "backwards med guy" And he knows that.
I asked if there was something else we could use. And told him when I was in the recovery hospital. That Dr. had me on something that worked and I could tolerate. But that I wasn't sure what it was, Dilaudid, I think. He said we would give that a try and he would start me out on a low dose. Then go from there.
The pharmacy had to order it in. so I won't be able to access it till Tues. When it comes in.
If this new cocktail doesn't work. I'm asking for a pain pump. It only takes a small amount of drugs, and they don't go through you system. So save the Brain and the organs.
