... She cries
If your mother in law is in pain and the nursing home isn't treating it, threaten them with a lawyer!
She should be made comfortable, at the very least.
It seems like your question got cut off, do you want to add more information?
The nursing home may be worried about "addiction", that's ridiculous, an 83 year old woman is NOT going to be buying drugs on the streets nor will she suffer if she takes this for the rest of her years.
Please add more info if you would like to as this will help others answer your question.
I lost my beloved MIL about a year ago, and it still hurts. I know how you feel, mine was in a nursing home for quite a while, too. But the nursing home was lovely and they took care of any pain she had. I am hoping your MIL will be taken care of if you just raise a bit of hell around that place, it may take doing that to get the attention for your MIL, the attention she needs and deserves.
Best wishes to you,
I am 40 and diagnosed with R A and itprogressively gets worse , I do see a pain management Dr so I am able to function ( walk and do chores etc) I needed this because I have a 6 yr old and I could not just lay around , it wasn't fair to my daughter.my point is the pain Dr has helped tremendous lay.
Hi, if she is taking the Tramadol regularly and is still experiencing pain, ask the nursing home to ask for a home visit from her doctor to give her an examination and consider adding extra pain relief. You can take other pain relief medications safely with Tramadol, but it would depend if she is taking other medications, so i can't advise without knowing that.
