I’m not getting the same pain relief as before. Dosage is 13.5 ER 2x times daily.
Has anyone else's pain management doctor gone so far as to suggest that PAS, physician assisted suicide, is "an option" for treating your intractable pain? Since when has this " treatment" been acceptable!?
I just moved here. Am about to get United Healthcare (a Medigap plan). I'm on hydrocodone/ acetaminophen, 3 pills a day plus morphine sulfate ER, 15 mgs. Been taking this amount for 8 years. ( Finally got my Kaiser doctor in CA to add a 4th, but she started a taper when the crap new CDC guidelines came out last year.) I'm so worried a new Dr will try and cut me back even more. My quality of life would be zero, if that happens! Thanks in advance for any recomendations!
I've had no constipation issues. It's calcium supplements that bind me up! I use Sena, an OTC stool softener and/or liposomal vitamin c.
Did anyone else have to sign a contract with their Dr.? I had to sign a promise that I would not accept any controlled substance from any other Dr. Or his service will be terminated.
When I was taken to the ER with a fractured clavicle I had no idea what they were giving me in the IV. I FOUND OUT LATER.
I found out from my family Dr. That CBD drops will affect your urine test and will show up. BE FOREWARNED.
Contracts are malarkey. We are treated worse than injured animals and pets.
Who else, besides me, forgets sometimes all your symptoms or issues when you go to the ER or a specialist and need to write them down in a pocket book to refer to? What other things do you do to remember?
Because I have a few other conditions, that may be life threatening. I can't get the doctors o focus on my pain.
To be frank I don't care if the other things kill me, if they don't relieve the pain life isn't worth living anyway.
Anyone else had this problem, how did you get the doctors to understand.

My husband told me that Pres. Trump said he’d like to do away with half of all pain meds use! I’ve been on pain meds off and on from 21 to mid 30’s since I had received approx. 20+ surgeries in that time. Then 20 years ago ruptured L-4 and L-5, L-5 S-1. Pain was unbearable . I’ve been on them straight since then , Oct 21st at 1:10 pm ,1997. You don’t forget the date that changed your life. I’ve been treated like a drug seeker all my life on meds. Once and awhile you’ll find a dr who knows pain… read more
