Welcome Without Hands........., I'm glad you found this forum and that you posted. This is a very caring and helpful place. You will find many people here who understand and who want to help you.
First of all, I take Oxycodone 10/650 every three to four hours. For me it helps tremendously. I went on other meds for a time, including morphine, but none of them did the trick like the percocet (oxy). Why you are going off the medication and what is he switching you to? I do believe you are better off with a pain specialist. Try to hold on til you get to your appointment. I'm glad you made one. That was smart, indeed.
I will keep you in my prayers and hope that you get some relief soon.
