does anyone know if after having gastric bypass if long acting meds are not absorbed?? my doctor keeps uping my meds and im at the highest oxycontin 80mgs 3xday and it doesnt work and the doctor looks at me like im nutz. the doctor knows i have had gastric bypass how could he not have put one and one together?? this has been going on for 10 months...10 months of unneccessary pain, i could have had better control of the pain...so mad!!!!
btw i had a spinal fusion at L4-L5 TLIF with 2 rods and 6 screws on 1/26/2011. i am still experiencing severe stabbing pain in my back. the pain in my legs is alot better. if i lay down too long i get burning pain in my legs which wakes me up at night multiple times.
