For those of u who r aware of my ?s Heres what happend. I asked for percocet along with the low dose of methadone or to switch completely and his answer was NO! He said he thought percocet was not right for me and it was too addicting. What Sense Does That Make!!! Im on methadone for petes sake!So heres my new?. do i switch doctors? I have an appt with a gastro doc on monday but I am not sure its my gallbladder... Can I ask him to take it anyway?? If it is my gallbladder( er said it looked fine) I would rather just get it out and hope I feel better... I can take this anymore... Pain, sick and veryy tired and my pain doc WILL NOT change my med. Very hard to get into any doc where i am... I need a different pain med... Is there any thing else I can do?? I even tried the er and they r even more leary bout meds there... please tell me what to do... He gave me belladona alkaloids,,, no help... also on reglan for nausea,,, that helps... HELP!!
your right,that doesnt make any sense being that methadone,is stronger than percocets,but methadone keeps on working as percocets do not after taken for a long period of time,i know this by my own experience. being sick all the time,is a symptom of gallbladder problems,my grandmother had that and thats the only symptom she had,plus my step sister and my mother in law all had theirs taken out,and felt so much better afterwards,so it doesnt hurt to check,and if your doctor isnt helping you like you feel he/she should be,and your not happy with him/her,then i would find another doctor,one that listens to you and all you have to say. Im in the same situation as you are,for one,the doctor isnt even and md,for two,they pile so many ppl in one day,they rush you out and dont give you a chance to talk,so im now in the process of finding a different doctor,one who will listen to all my problems and symptoms,so that maybe they can actually find something that helps.
I really feel where i go,it's all about the money to them,i know that's harsh to say,but if you knew where i went,and how they treated their patients,you'd understand. Good luck to you,and yes,get a second opinion,especially if your not getting the help you need where your at now. They work for you,remember that,your paying them,and i dont care if it takes five doctors until you find the right one,it's very worth it!!! after all,this is your life,your heath,so you take control.
As long as you're on methadone then any other opiate you take is useless. I'm surprised your doctor even ordered you percocet. You either can go up on the methadone or slowly ween off it and try something else. You are playing Russian Roulette taking other opiates with methadone. Methadone virtually blocks all your opiate receptors so no matter what you take even heroin will not break through the methadone. You could end up dieing in your sleep from a overdose that you aren't even aware of. Mixing opiates with methadone can cause respiratory failure... Be very careful, this stuff makes oxycodone look like aspirin... Dave
oh my gosh where do all these drs' come from?!i love my pain dr,but was relegated to his p.a.& i can't schedule a visit w/him unless it's for an injection.the front desk actually told me that i can see his p.a.(who just graduated,this is her 1st job;know it all bitch who's called me a drugseeking addict ) or "good luck finding another pain dr who'll see you after youve caused all this trouble"because i demanded to see or talk to my dr.,or else i wanted to see the director.that of course got me nowhere.i am seriously considering trying to find an alternative source for drugs,i'm hurting all the time,i don't have a life w/all this pain consuming me.if you're already on methadone obviously you're hurting bad,they should automatically up your methadone dose if you say it isn't working,percs' won't help w/the methadone&it's ignorant if your drs.don't know that!why is it that you know more than they ...
do about your meds!have you been checked for crohns' or ulcerative colitis?just 2 more things that cause tremendous stomach pain,i know that from personal experience.my appendix,gallbladder and finally lg colon were removed before they FINALLYfigured out what was wrong w/me.i wish you the best of luck,come back&talk whenever you feel like it.bless you,DI
I went 7 years with them telling me my gallbladder was fine then had a dicideascan or pepidascan and found my gall baldder was not working at all follow your gut feeling and demand all the studies that would diagnose your pain. Hope this helps. When you see a gastroenterologist make sure you see the dead of the department waiting a few more days to get in with the best is worth it. Have they checked your pancrease Good Luck Hang in there and never take no for an answer.
