I cut my meds down myself bc I'm pregnant now they want to take me off them when I have baby I've been there for 8 years w real pain I made a decision that I thought was right I didn't want my baby on all that it ain't fair
What you did for your baby was smart indeed, and now you are being almost punished for it, unbelievable!! Please, have a frank discussion with your doc at your PM clinic, if they do NOT listen then find another PM doc that WILL LISTEN TO YOUR NEEDS,
Best wishes to you and your baby,
Let me ask you this (and I'm not trying to judge, I just want to get a look at the whole picture) Did the pain clinic know you were pregnant? Did you tell them right up front as soon as you found out or did you keep them in the dark and just decided to cut down on your own to protect the baby from too much med? If you did not tell them you were pregnant then you have violated trust and are showing a big sign of addiction and that is continuing to use in spite of harm. That Dr could be held resposible if something happens to the baby or if the baby goes through withdrawals when it is born. If you never told him you were pregnant then it is a big violation of trust. So he may be deciding you are addicted and thinks it is time to stop opioid treatment. If he DID know you were pregnant from the beginning, then I agree, he is being unfair and you might look into getting a new PM Dr.
If you never told him, or didnt tell him until you were several months along and showing, then you need to view it from his side and be honest with yourself that maybe there is a problem going on that you didnt want to tell him you were pregnant. Again, I'm not trying to judge you. We all make choices we think are best at the time but most choices do have consequences. If I am jumping to a wrong conclusion then I'm sorry. I'm just trying to see if there is a part of the equasion that is missing.
Sounds like you really need to have a good talk with your Dr. Are you planning on breast feeding as i know from my three grandkids they insisted she breastfed even though if they knew her diet they would of said formula.I am all for the breast feeding thing as i did it with both my boys but i wasn't on pain meds then and if i would of been as soon as i had those kids i would of demanded a bottle and said GIVE ME MY DAMN PAIN PILLS BACK NOW!!! Go to your family dr. and ask him about this problem as this is very wrong.
