  • i wonder how some people who state that morphine does not affect them would react if heroin was legal in the united states? heroin is heads above all with respect to pain control. i read sole survivor about the seal who was rescued by an afghan village and kept from the taliban. the guy who wrote it stated that the afghans gave him opium to smoke and it really really helped his pain. when he got back to the us, they gave him morphine and he stated it was not as strong as the opium. he probably built up a tolerance to the opium, heroin, and the morphine did not feel as strong. the same happened to me when i went from percocet down to vicodin. i did not feel the vicodin due to my body and the tolerance i built up from the percocet. i definitely want to see the movie when it comes out on dvd or on cable. what a story, all of his bodies killed and one who was wounded went up a hill, exposed to guns, to call in support, he got killed and also the medal of honor for this. these seals are unbelievable. if i was younger and with no back issues and in the navy, i would try out to see if i could hack it. i believe i have the temperment for it but i don't know if i could stay up for basically 5 days doing all the running and swimming in the cold water. cold reallly gets to me. major problems with cold. that is why i like to live in CA, sun beach warmth.
    I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
  • I've had it IV, & in a pain pump following surgery. The last time I I had a kidney stone, they gave me 24 mg, & it didn't help. I really wish I did respond to morphine, because I'm allergic to dyladud, so that doesn't give me many options.
    Also, as I've stated in many posts, my 10 yr old son was given 8 mg of morphine + 1 mg of Ativan for foot pain, & he was still crying in pain, with no relief.

    This is why I am trying to get the test done that shows how I metabolize drugs. Hopefully that will help me to get the right meds when I need them.
