Update: My doctor lowered my pain meds AGAIN last month KNOWING how poorly I am tolerating this forced wean. Despite being forced off my meds they made me see the "#addiction doctor" to assess my "risk" of addiction & that appt was yesterday. During that visit he actually said "I need to just get used to the #pain & I'll be fine", he said " everyone's going this #opioid free route & you have to deal with it" & a few other absurd things.

I WISH that I had good news to share with you all but sadly I don't. The #palliativecare doctor said he only treats end of life or #cancer pain & I am once again thrown back in the water like nasty stinky unwanted chum. He said that I shouldn't be removed off Rx #opioids & in his opinion the the forced wean is too aggressive. I happened to have a horrible #crps attack so he got to literally see what that looks like. It's not pretty.
