GOD when will they understand i;m not trying to get high i just want one day that i don't hurt!! have to see this doc on monday 16th will let you know if i have to stay in pain or not-like we don't have enough to deal with-hey thanks for letting me vent and i will pray you don't have to go through this again!!!

To make someone go down in 14 days after 2 years of taking pain medications is downright dangerous!!! Some Dr's simply don't care about thier patients.I'ts bad enough to be in pain,then have your Dr take you off and in 14 days,they may as well just stop you cold turkey! I have brought this to attn to my dr,and told him I was scared to death of being taken off my meds fast and he assured me if he tapered his patients off it takes months not 14 days...that is simply crazy!
