It might take Dr. Maine a while to see your question as he doesn't comment every day. This is something that you need to speak to your physician about. We are not allowed to make medical recommendations or give diagnosis over the internet, it is against WebMD policy. You might want to get a referral to a pain management physician to answer your question.There also might be some websites like Healingwell.com in their chat forum that might help you with your questions. Hope you find the answers you are looking for. Take good care,View Thread
In the past 2 years I have been having extensive dental work done. Once my infection was gone my tooth extraction caused no pain and didn't need pain medication. They were doing 1/4 of my mouth at a time so it's not like I was just having one tooth done at a time. They did bone graphs a few years ago when I wasn't a CPP. I just took a Darvocet N100 for that pain and that was just 2 a day. So sorry that you are having so much pain. Annette is usually spot on with her advice so listen to anything she has to say, she has been in the medical field a long time. Just remember that once the antibiotics start working on you you really won't need much pain relief other than some Motrin. Hope you find the answers you are looking for. Take good care,View Thread
You need to call and tell the doctor what is going on. Lifting 55lbs is not the wisest thing to do if you are already prone to hernia's.We cannot tell you exactly what is wrong because you cannot be diagnosed over the internet since we are not physicians. I hope you get to see your doctor soon and that you do not have another hernia. Hope all goes well. Take good care,View Thread
Bet, Sweetie, I am so sorry to hear about your problems with Kevin. Don't feel bad about getting rid of him, he is the loser and A LOSER! I was wondering why you haven't answered my email.
The last boyfriend I was with told me, one day, that he knew he would NEVER let me go and would handcuff me if I thought of leaving. Ironically, the only person I told was my ex-husband, who, within a couple of days, drove 5 hours to help me pack up my stuff. LOLOL, that's what got us back together and we were remarried 2 years later. That was the end to my travel nursing days!
NEVER STAY if you become afraid.
You are a smart girl and I am sure you handled things the way it should have been handled. There is always someone for everyone.
Please don't let this get you down, keep in touch and you know where to find me if you need to talk.
I think we might look at this question differently. Are they really asking if it is illegal not to provide the doctor with their Rx if the doctor is requesting a med check. Maybe they didn't want the doc to know how many pills were left? That is kind of how I was reading it. Anyone with me on reading it differently. If a doctor requests a med check it is not "illegal" not to supply them with the medication but you might be negating the contract you signed with the physician and therefore they might choose not to treat you anymore. That is just my take on the question, hope it helped. Take good care,View Thread
Annette, you don't have to worry about me not coming here anymore, y'all are stuck with me...lol Glad your daughter in law is such a blessing in your life, I have a son in law like that. I could have never hand picked a hubby that would treat my daughter and grandchildren better than him. Maybe one day you will feel comfortable with what you see me write to chance an email friendship, until then we will talk here. I think if you read enough of what someone writes you can almost begin to hear the inflection in the "voice" of the words. Hope to talk soon. Take good care,View Thread
OMG, I understand why you don't want to do it. I have never had anything like that happen to me and I have become friends with fellow nurses all over the world. And no, this is not my personal email, it is a toss email that I can get rid of or ignore any time I feel it necessary. I gained one of my best friends on the computer playing Pogo and we have visited each other several times. As a matter of fact, when I had to move out of my home in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina she flew in from Denver to help me pack. She knew how bad my back and hip were, she is an angel and I am blessed to have her as a friend. Hope to talk soon, Take good care,View Thread
Bet, I was just wondering if you would email me so we can start up a conversation and become friendlier. My address is Jeaneau3454@yahoo.com You can read my story to know what I have wrong with me and what's been fixed.lololol
Annette, if you would like to join our group the more the merrier. I live in a town that I have no friends and my computer is my only link to the outside and adults.
Hope y'all will contact my so we can start a 'get together'
When I first went to the PM I was just asked questions and examined. I had to go thru a drug class on the policies of the office.I did not get pain meds until I went through the drug class. Now I go monthly to get my Rx's and every once in a while they will drug test me and every month they do a pill count and I am required to also bring in my empty boxes of Fentanyl. Thank goodness they have come up with a plan of Fentanyl 50mcg Q48h and Nucynta 75mg tid. As long as this medication keeps me status quo I don't care how many drug tests they want to do. I already drive 68 miles one way just to get to his office. He has also done a Radio Frequency Lesioning Ablation 2 times that have worked wonders for the radicular pain that ran down both of my legs. I think it is too late and I am ranting. Hope all goes well and you get the answers you are looking for.
PS: CTBeth if you would like to contact me by email I would love to get to know you better and have someone to converse with since we have similar backgrounds. it's Jeaneau3454@yahoo.com Annette, I would love to talk to you also. Don't worry it's a throw away account anyway. can't wait to hear from y'all
