Hello All! My name is Christian Soldier. Many hurts from the field. From ruptured discs to a repaired foot with pins and screws. This upset the balance in my stance; hence, the worst pain imaginable. Standing, sitting, walking or twisting, I am slowly sinking at 65. Athletic and educated, I have no qualms about taking pain meds. It is not a moral issue. Everyone calls anyone who simply has a perscription for opiates gets the "you're an addict" look from the pharmacists these days.
My take: Morphine makes one sleep and feel unmotivated. One's soul has be anesthetized. OxycodoneIR is good but short acting. A combination of Oxycodone 15mg four times per day and Oxycontin ER twice or even three times a day if one can, is a good relief. Why? OxContin allows one energy to work. I can't afford to fall asleep as I work online and I am monitored. As much as they try to trash the drug and associate it with deaths one must realize. It isn't the drug, its the people who take it.
Exercise as much as one can, walking, small weights and a heated whirl pool can work miracles! Believe me, I've had it all and know the likes and dislikes. Lets talk. Best, Joel
