Asked over 1 year ago - Bristol, VA

Mother is 84yrs. old (I am her daughter and primary caregiver). She has multiple severe health issues including Chronic Back Pain from surgery performed in 1972, stroke, afib, gastrparesis, severe arthritis,neuropathy,etc. She has been on Lortab over 10yrs. She recently signed PMGMT. contract in Oct. 2012 but, we was never able to get a copy. I had to take her to the ER on 01/29/2013 with excruciating back pain radiating down her left leg and foot. ER DR. done a back xray , said that her arthritis was severe compared to the last one. He prescribed 12 Lortab 5/500 mg for breakthrough pain, take it easy for several days & follow-up with her Dr. as he was away on vacation. I called her Ortho Dr., made appmnt.,had2 epidurals, min.relief. Now I can't find a DR to help her suffering.
