Today is day 7 without Fentanyl and day 3 without Percocet. Actually, I guess I have crossed over into day 4 without Percocet.
I cannot believe how miserable this is. Truly. Yikes.
We went to my family doctor yesterday. My family doctor is incredible. We are blessed to have him. He supports me going off narcotics.
Today I woke up with more nausea. Despite taking anti-nausea prescription meds, I couldn't keep anything in my stomach. My awesome, incredible husband called the family doctor and said how bad I was still doing. The doctor called me in a prescription for a Clonidine tablet. The hubby picked it up along with mini plain bagels, Popsicles and a few other bland foods. I took the Clonidine tablet an hour ago. I believe it is helping with some of the withdrawal symptoms.
Clonidine is a prescription to usually help with high blood pressure but it is also used to help with withdrawal symptoms.
Some of my symptoms over the last week have been:
-My skin (especially palms) turning an orange color - this one was quite the surprise
-Not keeping anything in my stomach (I won't gross anyone out here)
-I am sure there is more but I am too tired to type
I took two Advil to help with the RSD pain earlier today. There is no plan here. I am truly winging this.
