... among other meds, and I have stayed on the same regimen for the last few years, which has worked pretty well for me. Well, now they are weaning me off of the Morphine Sulphate ER. It started out that I mentioned to the doc that maybe we would try to decrease it & see if it would help w/my constipation. But after the 1st decrease, a month later, I already noticed changes in the pain, so when I went back, I told the nurse (doc wasn't in that day) & she said that the decrease wouldn't have caused any pain that quickly! Uhmm? Really? So she decreased it even more! And went on to tell me that it's in the docs notes that he is weaning me COMPLETELY OFF the morphine! I'm SO confused! I told her it hasn't helped w/my bowel movements & she said that will take time. Well, it's been another month since the last decrease & still have the same constipation as before & the pain is almost unbearable. She wants me to go to pool therapy, which is fine & dandy, but in the meantime, I'm starting to gain some of my weight back, that took me SO LONG to lose! When I become inactive, from this pain, I gain weight so fast/easily... and I am so scared because it took me so long to lose over 100 lbs, when I was tipping the scale at 300 lbs! I am now under 200, but slowly climbing my way back up. Anyways, I was wondering if there was anyone that could please help me with this situation... or help me understand WHY my Dr. would be doing this all of a sudden! Can he do this to me? I never did anything to make him wanna take me completely off (like a dirty pee test or the wrong amount of pills when bringing them in for pill-counts!) I've NEVER tried to fill them early... or NEVER asked for xtra or had to go to emergency room to try & get any (like I know some people do)... so is this just a mis-communication? Or is there something else I'm missing here? If you need my diagnosis, I'll tell you, just didn't wanna go into too much detail. Thanks
