Lidoderm Patches -- Anyone?

Thanks, Marianwrn and Billsweetie68!

I feel very encouraged. What are these contracts that you both mention? Is it an agreement to only take pain meds prescribed by your one doc?

You both seem to have really positive attitudes for being in such pain. I hope I get there one day.

PM Contracts

My contract states that I will take only "controlled substances" prescribed by my PM doc and will use only one pharmacy to get all my meds. This meant that after my RSO/adhesion lysis I had to call her to get pain meds. It's no big deal for me because she is really good and really works with ya. She knows my whole gyn history too! I go in just a few minutes for repeat SI injections and I'm really having period-type pain and nausea (weird since everything is supposedly gone) and I know she will be more than willing to discuss this with me.

Keep the will get there one of these days. And hey, I'm not always in this good of a frame of mind....I have my days.

Lidoderm Patches -- Anyone?


You can find a standard pain management contract on the web.

As a patient, you agree to follow your PMs orders EXACTLY (no skipping and no increasing meds) as well as only taking pain meds prescribed by your PM. The patient is agreeing to be responsible for their medicine and that it will not be replaced if lost or stolen or for any reason.

Patients and their PMs to get everything in writing so that everything is understood. I'm sure it was originally designed to protect doctors from those who are addicted to pain meds and have used multiple doctors as their drug suppliers.

Hi Billssweetie,
What are the SI injections that you are receiving? Are they "trigger point" injections? Do they contain any drug? Are they given in your abdomen??? I ask because I also was dx with myofacial pain, but now, all of a sudden, I am having terrible shoulder spasms too! This right after a UTI!!!! What is going on here, BEFORE my TAH/BSO I was as healthy as a horse. This has really kicked my butt!!! But I am very wiiling to try anything to get rid of this pain!

SI Injections

SI injections are steroid and numbing injections directly in my SI joint. I don't really know how to explain exactly where that joint is except to say that it is in you lower back and and part of your pelvis. I had trigger point injections along with the first set and they did help the muscle spasm part. My injection did not go well Trouble with SI Injections and ORS!

I do hope every one of us that is in chronic pain is able to find relief! :Hug:s to all!

pelvic pain and medication

marian, I know it has been awhile since anyone posted at this
site, but I am new and I stumbled on to these post about meds.
Your pelvic info sounds very similar to mine. I have constant pain
in the pelvic, feels like it is on the inside, on the vaginal cuff where
they repaired my enterocele, which I thought would be the answer
to my problems, and it did help get that colon out of my vagina,
but I have been left with constant pain. I too am having problems
with the pain meds. Hydrocodone does help, it has been a God
sent, but this last month I have used more than usual and I know
my primary dr is going to refer me to a PM center, I just think they
are going to put me through a bunch of test and torment me with
some experiment. I am just worn out and am trying to work and
keep my job and insurance. I can't keep going through surgeries
and dr apptm's. I was wondering if anyone has experienced their
prescriptions have had different pain relief on different bottles.
This last bottle didn't seem to be as affective. I have been concerned about the negative affects on my liver and kidneys.
Does anyone know much about this? My pharmicist says it would
take more than what I am taking, but what about long term?
You know people can buy alcohol anytime, and as much as they
want, but we have to beg and be ashamed just to get enough
relief to work and keep our relationships going. I don't even
mention anything to my husband anymore, after sex I suffer
alot, just don't say anything. Thanks for listening, no one else
understands, and you can't really expect it. Glad you are there.
