I'm going to vent a bit
I'm 8 weeks post-op and last week I had to see doctor for pain on one side (where he removed ovary). He said he thought I pulled a muscle. He touched the area and I jumped!
Anyway, he didn't say he wanted to see me again, just to take whatever I needed for pain and do much of nothing for a week or two. I thought it was weird that he wouldn't want to check me again. Anyway, I have 800 Ibruprophen, Tylenol, and other such stuff .. none of it touched the pain... so I took the Darvon they sent me home with. That's the only thing that takes the pain away. I've only had about 10 of them since I had surgery 8 weeks ago, but when I called in today to ask for a refill, the nurse said no. She said they could be habit forming and I had to see him. He goes on vacation soon and I can't see him until April 10th. Sooo I'm in pain until then?
I told her that was stupid, that I had to sit here in pain, because SHE thought I was going to get hooked on them! Geesh! If that's the only thing that works, why not give me just enough to get by until the appt.?
She said to take it easy and that I was just a slow healer. Well ... I live alone and can only take it so easy, and even if I just sit .. it hurts sometimes.
I guess I'm just venting, and I'm mad that they're judging me in this way at MY age!
I feel like a child or teenager, that's being made suspect of being on drugs ... LOL.
What would you do? What am I suppose to do until the appt.?
Thanks for listening ...
