Pregnancy. I have scoliosis of the lower spine, 2slipped discs, and 2cracked vertibraes. Also my tailbone is out of place almost 5 full inches :-/ ..as everyone already knows being pregnant can cause alot of back pain but also whrn pregnant and have these back problems ... its soo much worse when it comes to pain :(. I told my doctor in the beginning that i was taking this and told her my problems and she just didnt care what i had to say she just said ... oh well about my pain and just suffer through it and stop taking everything now. Well my pain gts so severe at times i cant handle it. So yes i have been taking hydros and tramadol for pain when needed. But my doc doesnt know bc honestly she is rude and doesnt listen to anything you say. I feel is if she only cares about money!. But my question mainly is how far from my due date or day of labor which is July15th... that i should taper off and stop taking both meds so they are not detected in my system or.my babys and so my lil girl doesnt have any withdrawls at all. Im very concerned and scared about my daughters dependency if i was to keep taking and i do not want any problems when i have her. Such as with cps getting involved or anything related. I dont abuse the medications i only take them when i need them and dont take a large amount through the day either. I dont want them thinking i am a drug abuser when im not :( ... what do i do? Plz help with any suggestions or answers for me. It is so appreciated. Sorry so long but i have been wanting to discuss this for months. ..thank you so much
If you're not taking much, it shouldn't be hard to taper off of them. However, if you are really suffering and need something, its easier to deal with if you just take hydrocodone, then be sure the dr knows you've taken it and how much. They need to know in the hospital both to treat you and to watch for problems in the baby. If you have them prescribed for you, no one is going to think you're an abuser. I'm concerned if your doc is going to take your back problems into account when you're in labor. My advise is to make sure you find a different ob before your next child, lolol.
