Hello Linda! Sorry to hear about
your pain issue. I too take the Percocet's #10 325mg at least 2 to 3 a day for BT. You might want to ask about
Oxycontin, as it is supposed to last around 12hrs. I never got it to last anymore than 8 to 9hrs for me though, but was much better than the 2 to 3hrs I was getting on the Percocet's. It is basically the same med, but without the Tylenol in it. I think the Oxycontin is pure Oxycodone. I hope this help you, or at least points you in the right direction. Oh, and I forgot to tell you that I'm on 30mg of the Oxycontin X2. I sincerely hope you get to feeling better soon.
Also a #30 Oxycontin is the same as taking three #10mg Percocet's over a 12hr period. I take that X2, plus 2 to 3 of the percocet's, so I'm getting basically 8 to 9 Percocet's a day now.
My appt with my surgeon is the 2nd of Feb, and he will then set a hard date for my surgery to fuse L4-L5, and I can tell you, that I'm ready for it. :(
