Best of luck, Bruno. I'm sure it will all work out ok. Before my surgery I told myself I had no reason to worry since nothing was required of me except lay there unconscious. I'm not the one that had to cut someone's guts open and put them back together again. 

That pretty much worked but the gravity of the situation did hit me a little as I walked into that big cold operating room that looked like it was straight out of a movie. But then they had me breath into this thing and gave me a little shot in my IV and then there was nothing until I woke on the good drugs.

I'm having to take today and Monday off.
Since the week before the Northern Project i have been working steady milling ,building, moving logs and making new products to sell.
It hit me hard yesterday the right knee just gave up around 2:00.
It bugs me because I got so much to do.
Mentally I'm feeling good.

It's good to take the time off, we all hit a wall now and then, couple days to recuperate is more productive than slugging through.

Had a falling out with my primary care physician. 
2nd appointment in a row 2.5 hours behind.
Last Friday they brought me to the room then told me 2.5 wait.
Sorry I don't do well in small rooms for long waits.
Well my Dr got mad and cut me off on the med that made it so I could move around for work.
Can't get in to a new Dr for a month.
4 days latter I'm paying for it.
Back to worse than the tin man.Lots of milling to do.
My friend helping me won't run the tractor,I don't know if I can get in it today. Yesterday I couldn't. 
The med they cut me off cold has also made me sick.
Fun times again.
I felt better when I didn't go to the Dr's.

This "pain med" situation has reached a very unreasonable situation, and it was caused by druggies and abuse.  It has seriously affected the ones that really need it and it's not only there  but everywhere.  Our Daughter finally had to get a "pain pump" inserted for her back because pills are no longer available.

I wish you the best my Friend.

It is very difficult and not good to stop cold turkey.  the cdc is getting involved and promoting guidelines.  providers are going to jail for over prescribing.  The pharmacy my wife works at suggests that they follow the cdc rules but they are able to use their professional judgement, but 3 have been fired already for using their judgement. States are suing Pharmacy companies like Walgreens, and pharma companies.  some of this started in the 80's when we were told to use "objective" pain scales and to "take everyone's pain seriously"  meaning you have to give narcotics if the pt. rates their pain high enough.  So medical people are unsure what to do and the government getting into the mix never helps.  i know this does not help you with your pain, but may be part of the reason your Dr. is grumpy and scared.  good luck sir.

A tale of 2 friends..

Friend number 1, known him 30 years.

At one time we were very close. He took time off his life to come to Florida and help take care of me when I had the colon cancer.
He gets pain meds [percocet], Oxycontin blues, muscle relaxers [ruboxin] , xanax and ambian in what seems like a unlimited supply with prescriptions. So much that it effected our friendship to the point that I evicted him from the house he's rented from me for 6 years. The eviction was not about rent as he paid on time it was because of his drug use, the people he brought to my property, behavior, and I didn't want it on my conscious when he fell asleep, doped up in bed or recliner smoking and burn his drugged up butt to a crisp. As an aside he never drank.
That was not a pleasant eviction. It came close to becoming physical.

Friend number 2 Known him 30 years.
We've ridden tens of thousands of miles together. Those of you that have been to the Billarosa met him, 2 Tanks.

Many years ago he'd had a bad bike accident and related surgeries complete with rods in his spine, fusions, compound fractures etc this was a bad wreck. He was prescribed narcotic pain meds pretty much the same as above, a pretty big amount. He told his doc he did not want narcotics so they put him on Motrin 800 mg every 4 hours. He was a drinker

Few years back his kidneys quit, Month ago they took his kidneys out, combined they weighed 23 pounds. Each looked like a full size burnt brisket. Doc's determined the cause was too much motrin and drinking at the same time.

They sent him home from the hospital with a 7 day supply of vicodin and told him that's all he's getting. As of last week he had 4 days left after 3 weeks recovery, in pain but refusing to take any meds.

The pain pill problem got out of control so they shut it down even for the ones in need. Knee jerk reaction. Had the Docs paid more attention and saw what they were doing this wouldn't have happened IMO.

When the pill mills were up and running people were making millions a month with just a store front.
Here in Florida we were deemed the pill mill capital and had people from out of state coming here by the bus full to get pills. Food trucks and vendors set up around the mills because they had lines waiting to get in.
A doc would prescribe and right next door a pharmacy that only had pain meds would fill it. The deal was they split the script with the organizer. Guy I spoke with said he's get scripts for 360 oxy's a day from several Docs and split them 50/50 with the organizer.

Too many have died from pain meds. I'm waiting for the call about friend number 1 above.

I dunno what the fix is

YMMV

Itís complicated, thatís for sure. Some bad apples donít help.

Motrin and alcohol are a bad combo and clearly stated on the labels. Not everyone reads and follows the rules. Not necessarily because theyíre a bad person. There a lot of tragic stories out there.

NSAIDís can be very helpful but rules and warnings apply.

Bruno, I really hope things work out. Hang in there. Everyone here is with you.

I was on a pain management program .
A combo of 3 meds the one that helped most I took 1/2 what they told me to take.
One of my good friends broke his back he died of an overdose. 
My Dr praised me for how little I took to keep moving.
She was mad because I didn't wait.
I don't work well in big crowds and small rooms.
Got in the tractor loaded the log deck .
Just rained out with bad T storms.
Had all I could do to get in my truck.
