Thank you so much for the postings, they put alot of my questions to rest, yes I know I never will be 100% free from pain I know that. I have an upcoming visit to PM Dr. I can come more prepared to ask questions and choose a better combination of pain meds. The question about being addicted verses dependent (like insulin) from reading postings on this website have helped me to put a name to my particular situation. I need pain meds as I have tried so despartly to go without, I just need to get a handle on what works. So far I am always in this mode of just making it month by month with the scripts provided and I try to adjust the doses as the pain leven dictates, no I don't just take pills if I am not at a pain level that disturbs daily tasks. I just hate chasing the pain I rather prevent the pain. I am going tp try the patch again to keep a better (and more consistant) level of releif. 

Wish me luck
