How can I get back on my pain clinic?
I have been going to a pain clinic for almost 2 years till I got kicked off in April for something I did not do and need some advice getting back on it. In the past 8 months I have had 5 surgeries. One for my neck in which they put in cadavar bones and titaanium plates, one for my legs where I had over 200 stitches, my stomach with over 100 stitches, my arms with another 200 plus stitches and gallbladder removal. I have fibro, arthritis, back pain and I forgot to mention breast surgery. When I started going to the clinic and getting percocet and oxycotin I felt like my life started over and I was able to do things again and felt like a whole new person. I do not drink. At age 15 I went to a high school dance with some friends and one of them stole a bottle of tango from their parents liquor cabinet and we drank it before the dance behind the school and I got so sick i pucked my guts out and never drank again. I tried pot when I was around 17 and did not like it and never touched it again. So here is where my problem comes into play. In april when I had to go to the surgeon because of a fever and and infection my mother in-law took me because I was so sick I could not drive myself. The doctor gave me 2 perscriptions. One for an anti-biotic and one for pain medication. I had the anti-biotic filled BUT did not fill the pain medication because of a contrat I had with the clinic. When I got home I put the paper work on my counter along with the pain perscription and went right to bed. My mother in-law stayed with me for the nioght to make sure I was ok. While I was sleeping she cleaned my house and took care of the cats and while straightening things up whe noticed the pain percription and thinking she was doing me a favor she wnet and had it filled thinking she was helping me out. I did not know about her doing this until a couple days later the clinic called me in for a pill count and that is when I discovered the perscription was filled and I was told because I broke my contract I was kicked off the clinic. I told them I knew nothing about it and I did not fill it. When I got home I was crying so bad and told my mother in-law what happened and that is when she told me she saw it on the counter and filled it for me thinking I forgot to do it and she was only being helpful. But instead she screwed me up with the clinic because she did not know about any contract I had with them and thought she was just being helpful. Know she feels so bad and I am angry, but not at her because she is the most wonderful person in the world and was only trying to help. I wrote the doctor a letter telling him what happened and she also wrote him one telling him she filled it not knowing about the contract and yet they do not care about it and I am now off the clinic and in so much pain everyday and can't find another clinic less than 70 miles from my home. My primary care doctor has a policy about not perscribing narcotics and won't help me either. I have always had clean urines and took my meds EXACTLY the way I was suppose to and my pill counts were always right on the money. I am a 57 year old woman with arthritis, fibro, back pain, neck pain and a lot of other pains. I do not know what to do. I went from being able to function and doing the things I love like gardening, crocheting, takeing walks ect ect. I feel I deserve to be back on the clinic and he just won't take me back as a patient. Has this happened to anyone else and is there something I can do short of calling a lawyer to help me get back on the clinic and the meds I need to function again. I am so tired of wasting my life away on the couch and in bed all day and hurting beyond belief. I can't handle the pain anymore and I have no one to help me. I am thinking of writing him another letter but I don't feel it will help. I truley was the perfect patient and don't feel as tho I deserve to be treated this way. Does anyone know how I can get back on the clinic seeing that I did not break my contract by filling that pain perscription.? Can anyone help me? Because so many people abuse the system I any taking the downfall for a totally honest mistake that I knew nothing about. I live in the state of Massachusetts and need some suggestions and advice. Can anyone help?
