I had surgery back in March and the next day, they took me off Dilaudid and switched me to Motrin.
I had major dental work done 2 weeks ago (2 molars pulled)......No pain meds were scripted, I was told to take Aleve. I have gone back 3 times to have bone removed, was given a shot (numbing) and no pain meds.
I have been crying with agonizing pain since late June and I've even been to the ER. I have taken 20 days of antibiotic and 7 of a different antibiotic (at the same time) and a week ago was given an antibiotic shot (at the ER)........my face is still swollen, my jaw (upper and lower) and my teeth are excruciating. I'm also spitting up blood every morning now (gross and dark purple/brown). Now he's going to refer me to an oral surgeon (that I can't afford)......I can't get in to see him until tomorrow at 4 and agin told me to take Aleve..
Not everyone is trying to start or keep up an addiction........SOME OF US ARE JUST IN PAIN AND NEED HELP.......
Just a vent.......I'd like to knock his teeth out and then give him aleve.
