hopeful-girl Posted July 30, 2006 Report Share Posted July 30, 2006 I am seen by a wonderful primary care doctor. She is on vacation for 3 months and is traveling italy. YAH for her...................BUMMER for me. Right before she left we were increasing my dose of oxycodone from 20 to 25 since 20 was not helping any more. She had also said that this is normal for some one who has been on it for a while like me for our body to start to build a tolerance. We were going to try 30 if 25mg elexir did not work. Well 25 did not work and 30 30 did. Anyways SO I was taking 30 mg 4 times a day. Then because I lost the last three of my bottom teeth and got dry socket in every one I was taking the oxycodone 30mg every 4 hours for my pain.I went in Fridayto get my new motnhly precribtions from the new Doctor and she started asking me like a gazzilion questions and it was bothering me. She was even hinting around to being a bulimic and anorixic. Oh GEESH I am on a gastro paresis diet. So we know how little we eat and how it is all bland foods. That does not make me anorixic. OMG I was appalled by this. I am not there for her to diagnose me, I have my diagnosis. She is just to be there while My Primary is gone and I am their to have her disepnce my monthly meds until my priimary comes back.So tonight I go to take my 30 mg and I noticed that she cut it back to 20 mg. ARGH I am SO fricken pissed. Not only amI an SO much pain I wasn to crawl out of my skin I am angry she lowered the does. Now Ihave to call the my Primary care docotrs nurse on Monday and ask why she did that. SOmy question is. What are, our rights as apatient to haev our pain managed to make t threw our day.
