Please know you are not alone. This an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>um has really helped me! I''m on day 9 off FENTaNYL & day 3 off Darvocet. I used the Darvocet to help with the Fentanyl WD's. Fentanyl is waaaay stronger than Morphine! anyway, I'm feeling better today. I woke up with a little bit of a craving an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the Darvocet, but what I did was EaT! I lost 19 pounds in 2 months on the Fentanyl. I look bad! But, i don't care. Just make the leap & get started!
after the surgery it was as if no one would talk to me about what the hell was going on. what kinda of rod did they put in? <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> will it t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ke <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l? why does my knee and ankle HURT SOO BaD?

In my foot i have numbess in some areas and high sensitity in others. is this normal? also, the hosiptial gave me an EBI ORTHOPaK 2 to speed recovery.
I'm asking because if it is a simple hairline fracture, and not a clean break, you can just do cage rest (aan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> with any neccessary med's) and hope <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> the best. as <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> as it isn't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> split or serious fracture it would likely he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l fine. If there is a lump, you've got to worry about infection and inflammation (although infection is more serious, and WOULD need med's. The latter...you should, but with cage rest it may go down as it heals). ah, does Beckett put aNY weight on the paw at all?
atleast now, I feel ok physically its just the restless leg, which brings me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> my question. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> do you think it will t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ke bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e it goes away.. When i stopped about 8 months ago an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> about 5 days it went away, so I'm assuming that its gonna take about 10 this time around, what do you think?? It usually is only bad an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a couple of nights, then its tolerable but still there, you know? I'm just gonna have to suck it up because I want to get through this and be done with it.....
The official diagnosis is, Tibial Plateau Fracture, Level 4. (Clean_in_KS, feel free <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> Google it) I will require surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> put in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> plate and screws <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> put my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span> back together. Next step is an MRI to determine what is sure to be ligament damage. I had a very an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> talk with my doctor yesterday, she is completely aware of my issues with pain pill abuse. She told me not to be a martyr, and that this is a serious injury. She wants me to take Diluadid an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> pain.
I have a very an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> background story that I must give because it is a very important part of my current situation. Here goes: In 2012, symptoms began appearing in my left lower extremity (left leg) &amp; my upper right extremity (right shoulder, arm &amp; hand). Symptoms progressed rapidly all the while working with the Orthopedic surgeon getting numerous tests (MRIs, Nerve Conduction Studies, Myelogram).
then step 2 is sub-diving the can-do's into priorities or the methods you will use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ke care of the problem. So, the old bicycle with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broken</span> seat and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> flat tire -that goes into "can do" because the repairs seem pretty straightan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>ward and the results will be like a new bike. But it gets a low priority because there are more important things. anyway, this process I'll call CLaSSIFICaTION. Separate and CLaSSIFY.

WIll I feel great right away and be able to do normal things? Now, a relative who thinks they are the only one with pain and mostly lies, so I don't know whether to believe them or not said our grandfather had the surgery and was up literally dancing right after surgery that day.
Just looking an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> some advice dont know if I need a sling, need a doctor, or if it just needs time to heal?
He san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>s no sign of affection/emotion, etc and has been on it a week and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> half. I see that it can t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ke <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> few weeks <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> dog <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the new side effects. Does anyone have any suggestions as to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> we can keep him safe during this time? He is an indoor dog and bc of his bathroom issues right now we leave him in the kitchen all the time. But even then, if he pees on the floor he is stepping in it and falling (we have tile floors).
My doctor told me to t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ke Neurontin as well, and I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> horrible reaction <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> it, and refused <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ke it. He put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> steroid instead, and that cleared both up within 3-4 weeks. Not quick, but I did get relief. I still have numbness aan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> my left calf, and into my foot, but nothing like the excrutiating pain of this summer. Maybe you can ask your doctor about treatment using a steroid? I hope you feel better very soon.
as your nerves knit together, you will feel very odd things. It will feel numb <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>for</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> while, but the sensation does return although some people end up with a permanent numb spot at the top of the wound. Have you had your stitches out yet from the drain tube locations?
I have been going down the gym recently and find it annoying that I cant run...........The consultant seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> think it will t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ke upto <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> year <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> normal. The swelling is also very frustrating. I want the metal work removed when I can, has anyone ever had it removed? Is it an improvement?
Wish I would of tapered but it is what it is. Just stay strong this wont last an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>ever. It is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> process but it does get better. Eventually we will be back to our normal selves again, feeling amazing. I just asked God to make sure I remember this b/c I NEVER want to experience this s*** again!! God Bless!!
