Hi. I'm so glad i found this site. 3 long months ago i fractured more than one spinal vertabrae. My pcp is conservative but i found a pm. Thank God. The pain has been an 8-9 without medication. I'm now on oxycodone 5mg 2x a day for breakthrough and ms contin 15mg 2x a day. Its now about a 5. The meds will be reviewed in one week. I'm so grateful it's at a bearable level. And will get better. At age 57 it's going to be a long road and osteoporosis makes it longer. However now I'm not dreading waking up.
I know I'm going to learn a lot from you THANK YOU!
