I'm a tad new to this site and sick of dealing with the pain. I'm 55 & had surgery a couple years ago.. Fusion,,L4-L5-S1 and it didn't do much for the problem.. If I'd have known before the surgery what little relief it would provide I'd never have gone through with it.. Anyway,,,,,, I'm currently taking 32 mg of Exalgo daily & 15 mg oxycodone for break through pain... I go to a spine & pain clinic and the PA has tried different combinations of extended release meds,,,,,Oxycontin,,,,MScontin & the Exalgo I'm on now along with the oxycodone. I've been on the current meds for about a year and they're not doing the job anymore.. After the surgery I'm not wanting to do anything invasive I'm just wondering if anyone has gotten relief from a combination of meds that we haven't tried yet. Was on Fentnyl patches (75 micrograms) before the surgery and want no part of them.
