Grrr......


So.....

The knee doc is really, really GOOD at fixing knees.

Pain management, not so much.  

Coming home from the hospital,  a bottle of oxycodone  came with.  Including that bottle of 30 and the two refills, that would be 90 5mG tablets of legal ADDICTION DRUGS OMG WEALLDIE!!!

At least, that is pretty much the way the doc thinks.  Me.... um........  

Lets see.  If I followed the directions, each bottle of thirty would last about 3.5 days.  So, I made roughly 12 days worth of pain meds last FOUR WEEKS.  I logged every freaking pain med I took, for amount and time, from the day I got home.  I was down to 2 a night, just enough to break the pain and let me sleep most of the night.  The rest of the time is grinding teeth and Tylenol.

Doc says that's enough.

I might differ.  A little.  Honestly.... quite a lot.  I have no wish to be addicted to anything, more than I already am.  That said.....

OUCH.

GRRRRRRR..... 

For F^%$'s sake.... four weeks ago he cut my knee off with a chop saw.
