Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Unfortunately you cannot do much of anything. The purpose of a pain clinic is to wean a patient from pain medication slowly. This requires a contract that much be followed very closely, it seems she did not. If she begins to have withdrawal symptoms you would take her to the ER. But its going to be almost impossible to get a new pain Dr given the circumstance. I'm sorry.

She wasn't the one who answer the phone. My father and sister did. When my sister seen she was awake. Then told her. My mother called the clinic. They told her nobody called. She called twice. I can get the phone records where they both called
Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 8 months ago
Even if you could, they wont take her back if they discharged her. The phone records do not prove she called unfortunately

I hate this. My mother has done everything they have told her to do. She cant get out of bed but gets up to go to her appointments there. She is at the end of her life and because her family doctor put her on pain medicine she will die from withdraws from them.
Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 8 months ago
As I mentioned above if she has withdrawal you should take her to the ER. If she really is at the end of her life because of the pulmonary fibrosis you should help her to look into hospice services.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
