Hi everyone I have been a pain patient for many years and taken my fair share of different narcotics. I have been on Nucynta ER 250mg twice a day for about 13 months now. Prior I was on MSContin & MSIR for about 5-6 years. I also take a number of other medications. I've had 6 back surgeries. My problem at the moment is my right hip!! Dr cannot decide if I need a hip replacement or pelvic fusion. I cannot have an MRI because I have a Neuro Simulator implant. The plan now is a contrast ct which I hope is the last test. This interferes with my daily life tremendously. I have had back problems since my late 20's. I just want normal again!! I hope visiting here will help keep me optimistic. It is so difficult for family/friends to understand when they can't see an injury. Thank you Nana
