Once again...thank you all for all the great info.
Taco's trying the O2 with what I consider to be moderate success. I don't know what a non-rebreather mask is (and our O2 supplier couldn't tell me), so I'm not sure if we have one. I checked out the med info that Kip suggested and I'll try to follow those guidelines this evening if necessary. He's had between 2-3 headaches for the past 2 nights, but not as much vomitting and they appear to be quite painful, but not excrutiating...kinda like it's taken the edge off or something. He's trying to stay off the Stadol NS.
Another bout with incompetence in our medical community here. The Dr. prescribed Lidocaine for the headaches (probably based off of the info that I took in to him) but prescribed a gel. How the hell do you get that up your sinuses? I had a little psychic hit that things might not be in order, so I called the pharmacist to check on the order before picking it up yesterday. She (of course) had no knowledge of Lidocaine nasal spray or how to make it....so, I printed off a recipe for her from a pharmacy web site I found and faxed it over. I think she then realized that she could order it or something. Anyhow, I'm supposed to pick that up today.
Anyone know any good neurologists in Cincinnati or Dayton, Ohio? I'm researching this today.
Your posts are all so wonderful, funny, interesting and inspiring. Taco's not very interested in on-line communication, but I'm taking everything I learn here to him...and it has helped him immensely knowing that he is not alone.
