    Welcome to the forum!!'

    This is a wonderful place to get advice, encouragement, and just generally let it all out.

    Sounds like you got a surprise that wasn't very welcome. It was a chain of events similar you yours that made me start thinking about leaving the opiates behind and starting to live a new way. The Doctors and pain management and all that was a major part of my life for 5 long years.

    I've had 10 or 12 surgeries that left me pretty miserable with post procedure pain. I thought the meds were the answer. I am trying a different approach. If you might be interested in a life without opiates, Pain Docs, constant hassle, expense, and not to mention, feeling like a slave of the medicine, .......you have wondered in to the perfect place.

    Glad you came. You are very welcome here even if you just want to check it out.

    I am 35 days completely free of pain meds after everyday Norco for 5 years never missing a dose. It is possible and we can show you how we all got through to the other side.

    It is very sunny and bright where I am now!! A wonderful place free of the self imposed cage I was living in for so dang long.

    Anyway, I hope everything works out for you!! Keep coming back. This place grows on you

    Hello!

    Unfortunately these doctors have heard every excuse in the world about why an addict can’t come in for pill counts, or why they may miss an appointment. I believe every word you said, and your reasons for rescheduling may be valid, but to these doctors it means very little. According to the office policy you missed a pill count and that’s all that matters to the doctor. Could they have listened with sincerity to your plea to reschedule, yes, they sure could have. But most are quick to discharge for any rule violation.

    Try going in to the office, don’t call, make a personal appearance, and beg if you have to and ask if they would please reinstate you. Be nice and ask to speak with the doctor personally. If they won’t allow you back start searching for another doctor.

    Hope this helps and you get back in.

    Randy
