waiting to get my medication

Good morning, well I didn't get my medication delivered on time, the Meloxicam n Flexerill,although they r nothing compared to what I'm used to taking. I wish I could have asked for tramadol, a pill that works like morphine in the brain. All I can do is the best I can, until I get the morphine, n even then, I have to only take two per day. I guess I'll take it when the pain is absolutely unbearable. When I go back on the 9th, I'm definitely going to mention the tramadol or ultram.

pain management problems

Posted 03-27-2015 at 09:36 PM by babygirl 4474

Hello group. I went to the new primary care physician yesterday, only to have me feel like a criminal. He had his nurse come in, as if just to make me look like a bad guy. This all started because I thought from 2/5/15 to 3/5/15, was when I was do to get my medication. Because February was a short month, oil had to wait till the 7th. I started having withdrawal symptoms, n I wasn't used to that, the diarrhea, shocks in my legs, sweats. I wish I had been strong enough to hold on. I wish...

Update 3

Posted 12-31-2014 at 02:33 PM by Tori358

Hi all! I am 22 days post op and doing well. I noticed yesterday that I have about a 2-3 inch strip on the underside of my arm that is completely numb. It starts about my elbow and goes down my arm. Other than that I would say I'm doing quite well. I am able to bend my arm pretty easily. My incision looks like its healing well. I still have Steri Strips on it which I can remove in another 3 days. After I remove them I was told to start massaging the incision with something. I will try some coconut...

Hi everyone. So today I had my stitches removed. Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. It felt a little pinchy but only took about 2 minutes. They applied Steri Strips to my cut because with this type of incision, there will be a little gap between the stitches. The doctor told me that I can get it wet as long as I dry it when I get out of the shower. I can officially drive again, which I'm ecstatic about, ( I really missed driving). Doctor does not want me to grasp anything with that hand...

Update 1

Posted 12-19-2014 at 02:05 PM by Tori358

So here is my first update since my last entry. Today I am 10 days post op and my pain level resting is a 2. When I use my arm too much, my pain level becomes a 4-5. The swelling has gone down and I do not have any bruising that I can see. All of my nausea and dizziness is gone and I'm feeling much better. I have noticed some prickly feelings coming from my wound, probably the stitches. That bugs me more than anything else. I am only taking Aleve now and only to help with the inflammation. I don't...
