I moved the non-NSAID medicine for pain to early afternoon. If I fall asleep before 4 or 5 in the morning, then that may have to be my one dose of medicine for the day. At least if I can take it once during the day, it will give me a little break, a little relief.
The orthopedist1 did call to say that it was okay to discontinue the Pennsaid. I wasn’t exactly asking permission when I let him know about my going off of it. I wasn’t going to start taking it again if he protested. I have to do what’s right for my health and that medicine definitely wasn’t. But it is nice that he’s cool with it.
I’m still annoyed that he kept the diagnosis from me, but it hasn’t exactly been long enough to get over it.
