And the Nobel Prize for Stoicism goes to...

My current pain meds are not even touching the searing pain from my left knee.

My doc offered me serious schedule 2 narcotics for me knee, but like an idiot I turned him down because I didn't want them to interfere with my ability to drive and work (not to mention that in the back of my mind I didn't want him to think I was seeking drugs).

Now the pain is interfering with my ability to think, breath, live...

So in retrospect, trying to play tough guy was a bad choice.

Note to self: When the doctor thinks you are hurt badly enough to warrant the big guns, don't talk him out of it. It turns out there's no prize for stoicism.

Can't the stoic call the dr and ask for them after the fact? Or perhaps there might be something else wrong with your knee?

Didn't QuietusLeo offer assistance on an earlier thread?

This means that you won't be Yarden's outrider then? Poor you. The alternative to the meds is a case of single malts and a week to lie down and enjoy them.

Call the doc back pronto and get the meds now. Being in pain is not only really unpleasant, it slows and interferes with healing. Hoping things start looking up soon.

Refuah shleimah! Missed this most recent "turn for the worse", but hoping that the recovery gives you some time and fodder for blog posts. ;-)

And definitely get some pain meds - Bratschgirl has it right. When you know what is wrong, the pain just makes you miserable and delays rest/healing.

Call the doctor and see about stronger meds. Do it yesterday.
