My sweet friend. Don't say it's not even worth mentioning. It is,in fact, interesting that one would never think you had to go through all that medication for what you had. However, it sounds better than that tourniquet thing. Now that sounds like a painful and uncomfortable way to numb your finger.
Again, Suboxone is not heard of. It's funny how some doctors say right away "Oh, O.K. no problem we will manage your pain accordingly" and then you hear them tell the nurses and attending PA.s. "She is on Suboxone, she needs additionnal pain meds" But then on the other hand some will say "What is that?" So, your post helps us to see, once again, that our battle for proper pain management in the event of a sudden need for it, is not over. I wish there was a way to bring more awareness.
I'm glad you got those thorns out. Enjoy the holidays!
Love you sweets,
