Feel like i know you all, ive recently come across this great forum and have read each and every post, maybe twice. This happens to be the nicest and most knowledgeable place out there. My story is two failed back surgeries, left me with lotz of scar tissue gettin tangled up down there and causing Mr. Pain to visit daily. Ive been on 10/325 oxycodone now for six months, and they were not cutting it anymore. So, my PM doc suggested 10mg of oxycontin, with the 10/325 for breakthru. So far, so good on my second day, second dose. Im impressed. I might say, its plain wierd not having that nagging leg and buttox pain. And, from reading what others say, yes i may be in for an increase and yes i know the wd might be nasty, but ill take that risk to keep Mr. Pain away, far away. Im not really that elderly, thats just a online gaming tag ive had for years, im actually 57 on monday. Nice to meet you all and look forward to helping in any way i can.
