Update from "Not crazy ..Newbie"

I've been to my dr's appointment and found out I have a scheduled visit with a Neurosurgeon in Vancouver on September 30th. That's not too bad for a wait. I thought it would be much longer.
My dr gave me a prescription for Tramacet to replace the "NASTY"(for me) oxycocet...does anyone on here have any experience with this medication?
It does tune the pain down to a dull roar with only some nausea(gravol helps)...other than that it seems to be OK till I find out for sure what treatment will be in store for me.
My dr seems to be leaning toward surgery!? I guess it is wait and see till the Neurosurgeon consult.
I wonder what "not in constant pain" feels like!
Cheers all.
