I saw my Dr last week, and he took me off most of the IR drugs, and put me on OxyContin 20mg twice a day, and left me with the Percocet 10 for BT pain. So far it seems to be working pretty well. Although I still hurt in the morning, it is not like it used to be. I can take one Percocet and within 30 - 45 minutes feel so much better. It used to take me over 2 hours to dig out of the pain so I could start my day. And I am sleeping better too. Not waking up in pain where I have to try and find a different position that would allow me to sleep. I want to thank everyone who made me aware of the OxyContin, and advised me to speak to my dr about an ER pill instead of all the IR's. And during the day, when I start to feel the BT pain coming on, I take the percocet and that helps me. I am happy to be off the stronger Oxycodone and Morphine. This was really such a good choice. I have been on it since Wednesday. turn

I'm so happy to hear things are going well for you! Like Chart said...It's so nice to hear a positive result from a doctor's visit and to hear that someone is feeling better.
