Dr. K Update [Dec. 9th, 2008|07:01 pm]
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

He gave me anti-nausea medication. In fact, it's the strong kind they give cancer patients going through chemo. The plan is to try that and bland food for 1 week until I get the spine injection. The day after the spine injection I follow up with Dr. K and he prescribes me pain management meds for over the holidays based on how I do.

He said my pain log was very helpful and one of the best he's ever read and to keep it up. It is my job to record this stuff daily all week to help him decide what we are going to do to keep the pain under control over the holidays without me throwing up.

As if it got the joke, I filled my anti-nausea medication, went to the car, took a pill and immediately threw up into a bag in the car. Isn't throwing up your anti-nausea medication ironic?

Ondansetron right?

Did they give you the orally disintigrating tablet? If not, ask for it next time. It'll dissolve right on your tongue and you're going to get the meds instead of barfing them up.

Re: Ondansetron right?

Yes, Ondansetron. He gave me enough that I just took another one later and it worked. :)

I think I need to take them earlier and when I'm not UP and causing myself pain. I'll keep that in mind though if I'm unable to keep them down.
