hi. I have a cervical herniation from car accident. I just started checking out the site and already have learned so much. . i mostly have questions about pain meds and a new procedure I may try. I already had epidurals, facet blocks, discograpth, they say surgery is unlikely to help. Next up is a nerve ablation. it sounds scary.
i'm real stubborn about taking pain meds but i need to increase them after 18 mnths of pain. started with vicadon and now on to 10/325 oxycodone 3 x's a day. it's not enough. So far i learned from the site to not take the tyenole mix anymore - doesn't help anyway so I'll ask for straight oxycodone and 4 x's a day. Or should I switch to something like oxycotin b/c i learned it is longer acting.
THis site is a life safer and I'll search for these answers and much more as the days go by.
It will be nice to chat with others who understand
