Good morning and welcome to Healing Well! I would like to invite you to start an introduction about yourself. That way we can give you a proper welcome and get to know you!
We have many care providers of persons with chronic pain here. I know it is very hard to care for someone in chronic pain, let alone your own father. When it comes to pain medications, I would urge you to go with your father to his appointments. Speak your concerns freely with his doctor. There may be nerve damage or other reasons why he needs the medication long term. So, it will be important to first find out why he had been on the medication so long.
Again, it was very nice to meet you! Welcome to Healing Well!
(p.s. I think I might copy and paste your post into a new topic. I will use your "member name" in the title so you can find it easier)
