: Hi Pat, thanks for looking up the info. for me. The correct spelling of the drug was Talacen. Since I was at work and felt like -rap I wrote it down wrong. Believe it or not Talwin is extremely poisonous(sp) to the body. There's Talacen and Talwin. They are 2 different kinds of meds in the Pentazocine family. I don't think any doc in his right mind would prescribe Talwin for anybody. It sounds really dangerous to take. My script when I go pick it up tomorrow will be Pentazocine/Acetamin Tabletwat (The Talacen). I don't know the mg. they will be. But somehow I don't think this med will help neither. This definitely feels like a "mechanical problem" again. I've just been biding my time. I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. I'll see the doc in a couple of weeks and I'm going to have him write a script out for a myleo-g. again and this time even if I do feel uncomfortable having the test done I'll have no choice. It's the only way to see the actual picture of what's going on inside and what's what. Even an MRI won't show my doc what a myleo-g will.
: Thanks for looking up the info for me Pat. And how are you doing these days? Well I hope?
Thank you for asking how I am doing. You know, good days and not so good. I have my daughter, her husband and grandkids right next door. My grandchildren are two girls, ages 8 and 11 months, and I babysit them 3 hours a day, 3 days a week. Lifting the 11 month old causes my arms to burn (neck fusion in June, 2000), but since the baby doesn't like anyone else but me to watch her and since that baby has been a God send to me to lift me from depression, I continue to watch her and Alyssa. Grandma can get crazy with the kids and we can have fun. Being a grandmother is one of the coolest things I have ever experienced. It is like a second chance to fix your mistakes with the your kids. It is like seeing my two boys & daughter all rolled up into new people. This message board has also been a God send. If I can give a little info to someone plus hear what others with this back stuff go through (just saw Alan Z.'s post this morning), I know I am not alone. This weekend, we are taking our old R.V. to a Barter Faire in Tonasket, WA. All these old hippies basically sell their crafts and/or junk at this tent/R.V. village that is suddenly built out in the middle of nowhere. You see all sorts of weird people. They play drums and dance around campfires; just wish the weather would be a little better, but I think rain will only be for today & we are driving out there today which will take 3 hours. So, I have something fun to look forward to. There is another back problem girl and her hubby who has chrons disease who will be there. My two boys, my daughter, grandkids, her hubby are all going. Fortunately, they will be there in shifts, so my R.V. won't be too over loaded. Got something to look forward to and I have found we all need something to look forward to, no matter how big or small it is. I get to lie down in the R.V. if sitting becomes a problem. It is old, 1976, but in really nice shape. Don't ask me how I got here
into R.V. talk. Anyway, Francesca, thank you for asking about me. Good luck to you on your x-ray. My prayers are with you. Pat G.
