I refuse to have another surgery unless something threatens my ability to walk or bladder/bowel function, but I am so tired of this pain! I've been anywhere from 10-40 mg of Opana with vicodin for breakthrough. I take neurontin and the max dose of wellbutrin along with 100,000 u of vit d (per wk). Right now it's 10mg of Opana, but I'm kidding myself that it's touching anything. I recently had missing medications (20 vicodin and 20 opana)despite a locked bedroom door (I had to get a heavy lock box as well now). This is the 1st time in 6 yrs (I have 2 teens denying any part of the missing meds)that I've had this problem, but the w/d's and the increased pain is about to kill me. It's 3am as I type this.
I wanted to know how the pump does. The idea of such a small amt of medication that is implanted inside me (imposible to go "missing")is looking pretty darn good.Any ifo is appreciated! Gotta find other options or I'm going to lose my mind!
Also...anyone have a nerve block at L5/S1? This is another thought. I'm waiting to see my PCP on the 26th & I think I'm going to ask for a pain mgt referral to Duke. Gotta do something!
