Hi Romero, and welcome to the group - though I'm very sorry that you've had reason to join us. You've certainly been through a lot. I really do hope that 2012 is a better year for you than last year was.

A lot of us here have nerve pain of various forms, and it's a horrid pain to live with. As far as the oxycodone goes - is it something you're taking regularly? If you're having to take immediate release (IR) oxycodone frequently, it might be worth speaking to your doctor about switching to a controlled release (CR) form. Oxycontin (the CR form) and other long acting opiate meds are often better for chronic pain patients than IR ones because they give a more stable level of drug in the body and theoretically a more stable level of pain relief than taking a tablet every 6 hours or so.

I'm sure the others will be along soon, and I hope that you'll find plenty of support here.
