Hi I'am a mother of 3 kids I'm 24yrs old for the past yr well since i gave birth to my 3rd baby i had alot of pain in my lower pelvic region and had no idea why I was in the E.R. alot and all they could say was an ovarian cyst till one night this awesome E.R. Doc. said there is more going on here and admitted me for lapriscopic surgery they found out I had sate 2 endimitriosis in my uterus and left ovary this was in December after almost a yr. of narcotic pain meds prescribed by my doc and the e.r. we finally knew what was wrong so i then had to deal with insurance to get my partial hysterectomy wich took several months during that time my doc. had me on a narcotic pain med. for pain managment in Feb. I finally had my hysterectomy only removing my uterus for now after I healed from the surgery I found my body had become dependent on the pain meds. I had no pain from the endimitriosis just from withdraws I was very sick I asked my doc to wean me off or help with the detox he dropped me refusing to help saying as an OB he cant do anything other than prescribe them but since I admitted my body had become addicted well he didnt like that and wouldnt help so i contacted my physcologist who put in the suboxone program to not only treat my dependence but to help with any pain I may have from the endimitriosis that still exsits in my left ovary I have been in group therapy plus taking the suboxone for 2 months now and I have to say I feel better than I have in a very long time and my beautiful kids are reaping the benefit THEY HAVE THEIR MOM BACK :) is suboxone for everyone no it isnt but with my chronic pain and addiction it works I have no high feelings or spacey spells I am fully aware of my surroundings now where I wasnt when I was on the pain pills. I smile now and my husband is happier and our relationship has improved ten fold Im also getting treatment for my anxiety and other personal problems that may have led to my depression all with the same doc lol makes appointments easier and multifunctional
I wish everyone happiness and joy
thanks for listening

Welcome to the Healing Well Chronic Pain Forum, I am sorry that you have had to go through all that, and I must say I think that your Doctor that prescribed your pain med originally is a real piece of work! If he is willing to prescribe these type of pain meds he should darn well be aware of what they can do to a person, and should be willing to help a person get off of them when they are no longer needed or wanted. How dare he treat you that way! He should not be practicing medicine with the way he treated you! When ever you are put on narcotic meds, for long periods of time, at the very least your body becomes physically dependent on them, just as your body does with many other medications, steroids ( prednisone) meds for high PB and many heart medication. In just about all cases you cannot just stop taking them, you have to be carefully and slowly weaned off of them! I really am sorry, that you were treated that way!

With that said I am glad that you are now getting proper treatment! There are a few people on this forum that are using Suboxone for the treatment of pain. I know in the past forum members had posted about it, and like most things it works well for some and not for others, but that applies to just about all pain meds, I take Oxcontin, but there are some folks that cannot tolerate it, or it just doesn't relieve their pain, so they have to take something else. Everyone is so different, and how they react to different pain medications! You see, what you decribed as "high feeling" and "spacey spells" I have never felt that way on my pain medication that I am on now, a long time ago when they had me on short lasting Vicoprofen, I use to have that type of feeling, and I hated it, but when they put me on the long lasting Oxycontin, I did not have any of that type of feeling, just relief from pain. However like many of the other medications that I am on, I am physically dependent on this medication to control my pain, and if I miss a dose or two, my body definitely lets me know about it! I am happy for you that your surgery helped relieve your pain, ( at least part of it) and you are getting good pain relief with taking suboxone, and counseling and help for your other problems. Depression is usually a constant companion with Chronic Pain, and many of us with chronic pain are on some type of antidepressant too.

Anyway I again Welcome you to our forum and our family here, I hope that you will stick around and become an active member of our family, I don't think you will find a better group of caring and compassionate people any where on the internet than what we have right here!
