Hi- I had Scoleosis surgery 2 years ago ( fusion T2-L3) and I have been managing my pain with hydrocodone 10/325 4 times per day. Taking the pain med has help me to have a "normal" life however 3 months ago I was diagnosticed with pancreatitis due to the medicine. Now I'm taking Creon to control my lipase levels. But My doctor told me if I still have the abdominal pain I will need to change my pain med to morphine (he mentioned a second med but I don't remember the name). My concern is if morphine will help me to control my pain as hydrocodone? When the ER dr told me I have pancreatitis scare me to death. And if you are taking any opiates please be aware that can cause pancreatitis. Please any advice with pain medications??
I live with pain 24/7. When I lie down on my bed is Iike if Im lying down on nails
