  • Pain Management appt this morning!

    Wish me luck that I don't come home in TEARS AGAIN!

    I'm taking my husband with me this time, I hope that helps. I'm pretty sure I'm the only IC patient at the pain clinic, so I feel like I'm fighting for ALL OF US and any IC patient that may come his way in the future.

    Please pray that he helps me!

    Love and hugs,
    Kara

    Good luck! I will be praying for you. I really hope you get some relief and I am so glad your hubby is going with you. It is a shame docs don't listen to us females but at this point I just want some relief for you.

    Hugs,
    April

          Thanks for your support.

          It went well.

          Apparently, he told us that he's had about 500 phone calls from upset patients complaining about the lowered narcotic dose.......and said his "experiment didn't work".........uhh......nope! lol

          He put me back on the MsContin and wants me to titrate up til I get to a point that I don't need my breakthrough. I may start a new thread on this to see if anyone has done this before.

          Yay!
