I am 49, 5'5",145 lb female. I have a history of breast cancer, hypothyroidism, Anemia, several other minor & major surgies. Nothing compares to this. My MD wants me off Oxycodone and weaned to Tramadol. I am trying, the more I try the worse it gets. Is it supposed to be this way? I have never had pain like this. My poor husband is having a heck of a time caring for me. I can barely walk more than to the bathroom and back. I go to PT and can do those exercises but those seem to make it worse. The worst time is between 8 pm- 8 am. I am terrified as I am going backwards not forwards and I am afraid my doctor isn't going to give me the meds I need to make it through. 7 out of the past 11 nights I could have gone to the ER it was so bad. Please, does anyone have any helpful advice or stories for me? I'm so distraught right now. Do doctors just deny medication to patients now? I cant fathom it and don't know what I'll do.
