I had surgery last year after a ruptured L5-S1 and have constant pain every day to where I can barely function. It was so bad last month it put my heart into AFIB and I spent a week in a cardiac unit. I was sent home on Opana 15mgER twice a day and had 5mgIR for breakthrough and I swear I had my life back I could do things pain stopped before. I went back for a refill and he refuses to put me on anything like that because my pain isn't that bad to him so he put me back on Norco. Yesterday I went to the ER because the pain was so bad I was vomiting and couldn't walk. What do I do?
Live one day at a time and do it with no regrets. I hold my head up high with pride to the fact that i wont let my injury beat me.
