Lower back, sciatica and ruptured disk.
C5, C6 and C7 artificial
Open heart surgery, November 2012 replaced left valve with cow valve.
I've read a lot about Oxycodone 15m. My doctor changed my prescription today from Percocet 10-325 to Oxycodone 15mg I had no problem filling it, and it really helps relieve the pain. Much better than Percocet. To everyone out there, I'm new at this, and did know so many people were suffering. Pain Management is the way to go. Everyone needs to be seen at least every two months in order for the medication to work for each person. But be careful because, I did overdose on Morphine by mistake, thinking I hadn't taken my dose. So be so very careful. Also, if you take a certain drug for a long time, you may need to try a different strength or even a different medication. Don't be affraid to let your doctor know if the medication isn't working as well as it did in the past.

    Ok guys it's been some time since I've posted but there's something I've been battling the last few months and I can't get my pain doc to help...Ive been taking hydrocodone for over 3 years for back pain, sciatica, multiple herniated discs and a broken vertebrae in my spine....i asked my doc today if he could give me something longer lasting because the hydro is not helping like before and he says his superior wouldn't allow him to do such a thing....any suggestions? I get so nervous talking to docs anyway but I mean I'm 25 years old and I can't live my life for being in pain all the time! Please help!! Thanks in advance

    Even PM doctors are very hesitant to give out stronger prescriptions, I'm going through this now. My GP won't issue a Rx for any pain medication past Motrin. I'd like to go from 7.5 percocet to the 10 or get an Rx for 120 of the 7.5, but no-go with that.

    I find that they are easier to talk to if I write down the topics and bring them with me to the appointment and check the items off as I discuss them with the doctor.

  • or are you both seeing your general practioners? GP's are not pain management doctors and are generally not well versed in manging chronic pain, so it would be wise to check your insurance websites for a list of pain management doctors who are more familiar with the various types of medications out there and their proper usage for the management of long term chronic pain. Here is a link to getting proper treatment for chronic pain.
