Hello all I am new to forum but wanted to give an update.  Our new president is passing a law that will no longer allow Dr.s in the hospital to allow patients to have any narcotic pain medication past three days.

In his ultimate opinion as a "doctor" he has decided that there is no reason for post surgical patients to have  pain meds for more than three days.  

Also for anyone on SSDI and on Medicare starting next month he is trying to and it looks like it will go through that Medicare will no longer pay for pain medications,  only injections...which won't work for someone like me who has hypercoaguable state and on a steady dose of injectable heparin. 

Additionally the Veterans Affairs has decided to stop their pain management program and only do injections as well.  I am a disabled veteran and when I went to the VA....who incidentally years ago started me on oral pain management was going to give me Narcan, which would have put me in immediate withdrawal.   

They have absolutely no sympathy and will not budge.  Sorry guys this is the foreshadowing of things to come.

Chime in please

Fyi. It's only going to get worse.  Personally for me I have a gene that makes me a poor metabolizer for almost every type of drug except basic morphine and synthetic morphine like dilaudid and since I've had gastric bypass many medications go through my system fast thus needing immediate release meds several times through out the day.

I feel for you lot across the pond. My country when we leave with a no deal will probably end up following you health care system. There is already mp's saying the nhs is unsustainable and we need to follow the US insurance based health care. Its fucking scandalous.

I am also a disabled vet and when I started going back to the “lovely” VA (when I had no more insurance...had a 5yr break from those morons), I was going to a civilian dr and my pcp at the VA told me they no longer pr€scribe m€ds for pAiN pTs. Which is total bullshit! And they’re the ones that started me on taking shit loads of pk’s. 

I have read articles where lawmakers and the CdC, and other agencies, have publicly stated that the (supposed) 0Pi epidemic laws have done nothing but hurt those ppl that really and truly need it and they’ve urged drs to stop under-Pr€scRibing but those same drs are now scared of having their license taken away. So...they continue to screw us over. Yay us...🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
