My Dr has had me on vicodin & morphine for a tear. On Fri at my appt he wanted me to try methadone for pain control. He said we would have to adjust the dosage as we go, and call him Mon a.m to let him know how it worked. It has been a weekend from H&*%. I actually caved & had to slip in a few vicodin to even function. I know I'm not supposed to do this nut I can NOT stand the pain, I feel like I have taken a giant leap backward. I wonder if changing the dose will work. I would love to hear from anyone who has tried this method of pain control. On top of all this my dr suspects I have a tumor on my vocal cords (lost my voice 6 weeks ago & have appt with ENT soon) I also was told to make an appt with pulmonary for possible sleep apnea as I can't stay awake during the day & do NOT sleep well at night (up every 1 1/2 hr) I honestly feel that I have no control over this DD & I am sooooo depressed (recently lost my dad to throat cancer) Sorry this is so long but I'm crying & just need some understanding from those who have walked in these shoes.
