Hey guys, I'd like to thank you all for your thoughtful and helpful replys to my post.
I finally found a dr. that I really like and is willing to help me. Today he wrote me for Opana 20mg bid and Lryrica 50mg tib. I will call him on Wendnesday to tell him if I need to bump It up. The only bummer is that the my insurance co doesn't pay for Opana. My dr. gave me a discount card for $300 off, though I'm not sure exactly how it works, I bought 20 pills ($170) and got $60 off. The pharmasist, who is now my new best advocate even gave me the card back for next time.
It's so awesome to be back on track. We also talked about deep brain stimulation. A little scary. Thanks again to those who took the time to reach out in my time of great pain and distress. Now I just have to watch out for the weight gain. Does counting calories help? Or does the Lyrica just make you add lbs?
