i need some ideas.
« on: August 02, 2007, 08:05:35 PM »
Hello Everyone,
I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to get through withdrawls from pain meds? My OS gave me a script for new pain meds and my insurance will not cover it. They need paper's from my OS before they can authorizie it. So until then I am without any meds because my OS will not call me back. I am at the end of my rope. Not only am I in pain, I get to go through withdrawls also. Can anyone help?

Thanks,
cielee

Hey Nettan, I hope everything is well with you.
Things are a little better finally got a new script and go back to OS on August 30. My OS said he wants to do an x-ray if I am not any better but I am going to tell him to do an MRI. Because I think I have scar tissue. When I bend my knee it feels like it is ripping and it burns very badly. All I know it has been a very hard 3 months and I am ready to get better.

Thanks for listening,
Cielee

A Mri would be better as x-rays doesn't show soft tissue damages. Good luck !!

Hello Cielee,

Have you found KNEEguru's info on arthrofibrosis, excess scar tissue, on the main website? I highly recommend that you take a look at it and arm yourself with info when you go back to your OS. Here are some links to the info:

Dr. Noyes’ arthrofibrosis tutorial and Dirk Kokmeyer’s rehab tutorial

KneeGuru’s literature review (look under problems with healing)

Hello, went to OS today and I am so fed up. I go into the office and wait for  45 minutes and they call me back to do an x-ray. Then they take me into the examing room and OS assistant comes in and says "Knee any better". and I say nope. So he looks at my knee and has me bend it while his hand is on it. I ask him if he could do an MRI because I think I have scar tissue and he says yes. Now I have to go back on September 4 for the MRI. Then go back on the 7th for the results.
All I know is that I have been in pain for over 3 months and they can't tell me what is the matter with me. I am supposed to go back to school on the 4th so I will go back on the 5th. The college I go to is nothing but stairs and hills so it is going to be fun. Sorry for whining but I am so tired of being in pain all day from the time I get out of bed till the time I go to bed. Plus, trying to figure out things to do so my mind is not thinking about it. Sorry again and thanks for listening.
