Dr.’s Appointment

20110914-100551.jpg

Yesterday I had a Dr.’s appointment with my pain doctor. Ange went with me, (thank god!) because he has been handling all of my medication…

The appointment went well and we decided to continue on our path to reduce the pain meds. The next medication to reduce is Methadone. We have to do this one slowly because it can be a little tricky. So we will start reducing it tomorrow and continue with that amount as long as my body can handle, then we will continue to reduce until we get to an amount that the Doctors feel comfortable with. Once we reach that amount we will switch back to the pain patches. Also at that time we will start to reduce the Lyrica until it is completely gone.

    Meth talks…darn auto correct. Method sounds like we are smart though…method to take over the world, start our own reality show ( too bad we can’t be more like snoopie) or whatever. Method soap..
