Hopefully I won't get judged here like some other places do. I'm tired of being on meds enough let alone having people looking down on me .I have been on oxycodone for almost two years now, and I am now completely dependant on it whoch frustrates me. Right now I'm in an immense amount of pain and also sick because someone stole some of my meds so I've been out a few days. my pain Dr seems to not be bothered by the lack of treatment we have done. He basically just prescribes the meds then sends me on my way, the only thing he referred me to was injections once . I had to go out on my own accord to talk to a back surgeon when the pain meds stopped working .he never ordered anything tests like an EMG until I went to the back surgeon and even then it was my surgeon who did it. I have done everything imaginable to help this pain before I got on the meds. Set up by myself calling the Dr or my PCP calling and setting it up . Pt, tens unit, chiropractor, massage, exercise, weight loss, ice/heat, and other stuff I can't even think of right now.
I am just wondering if anyone else has been on this position where you want off the meds but youre in too much pain and dependant on them to really stop. My pain is still there even with the meds but is helped at least that's where my problem comes in is that the surgery helped one side but my other side still hurts so badly that I have to take meds . Thanks for reading .
