As I've said before I generally don't get on with female doctors. But I'm seriously thinking about changing my GP to her. I explained to her that the 3 day pain patch wasn't working for a week like my GP wanted me to use it for. So she put me on it for three days then change it. Yes! a result. She thought that he put me on it for 7 days so I would get used to it because it's morphine based. And she gave me 5 refills, phew. She did give me another refill for the anti nausea meds but these are only supposed to be used short term. Sooooo as she's changed me to every three days she said I can use them for a month then shouldn't need them anymore. Yesterday the pain patch went into the 5th day and I'm having a bad back day today. Got to pick up the Rx this afternoon when it's signed then take it to the next town that has a pharmacy tomorrow.
Oh boy, I get to start taking afternoon naps again LOL the first three days on the patch I get very tired. Most times I don't sleep but just doze but that seems to work. I've always loved taking an afternoon nap, it's kind of like eating mashed potatoes as comfort food. Napping is comforting to me LOL.
