I saw the university specialist on friday. She wants to give me oxycontin. But first, she wants me to do another sleep study with esophageal pressure monitoring (*cringe*) to make sure I don't have sleep apnea. If I don't, medicine prescribed, no problem. If I do, she wants to put me on a cpap and then give me the medicine. I'm thinking, if I'm going to be on a cpap, why not just go back to taking tramadol then? But I'll follow the doctor's advice and give the oxycontin a try... I'm just a bit nervous about it because of all the bad stories out there.
