Discussions that mention morphine

Back Problems board


Scribe,

I am very surprised the doctor had you take x-rays laying on the table. :eek: In the hospital, my doctor gave strict orders not to have me lay down on the table, although the x-ray department forgot to listen to him and they threw on a back board and slid me over to the x-ray table. I could not push the morphine pump quick enough!!!! When I told the doctor he went into a rage and stormed down to the x-ray department to tell them all his patients must have the x-rays standing up.

I am 5 months post-op (today [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif[/img]) and during all my doctor visits, the x-rays have been always with me standing. Please discuss this with the doctor and the x-ray department about future x-rays.

I know you are in alot of pain now but it will be getting better.

Good luck with your recovery
