I don't think I have met you yet, but wanted to Welcome you here as well! As you can see, we have wonderful members here.
Ok!...so your taking #40 Oxycontin X7!....and my understanding is,.... #10 325mg Narco (hydrocodone) X18?
Also Oxycontin is a 12 med. How in the world to you take them without over lapping the hours? The Narco, seems like it is being uses in addition to the Oxycontin, and not for Break through, if indeed you are taking that many. So do you take all of this during your awake hours?...or do you have an alarm set throughout the night to take your meds around the clock?
I'm also wondering why your PM is mixing Hydrocodone and Oxycodone at the same time. It would seem to me that either one or the other, but I'm certianlly no expert on this.
WOW!...if that is the case....it does seem like a lot. (IMO) Maybe you would be a canadate for a pain pump, and I'm thinking, this will bypass your liver as well.
We do understand what your going through to a point, but now that we know what your taking dose wise, maybe someone will chime in with a suggestion for you. Has not your PM suggested a Pain Pump, with you being on this much medication?
You sound like you have very serious pain! So sorry to hear that. Please do let us know what you plan to do and if your PM increases your meds or suggest something else. This is interesting to say the least!
