Hi all, Sorry I've not been on to update you all sooner, things really got ontop of me, pain, other health problems, feeling really low etc.....I've been really struggling.
Anyhow, As many
of you know I switched meds from 40mgs OxyContin ER twice day & 20mgs
OxyNorm IR when needed for BT, because the Oxycodone had stopped taking edge of
the pain, My GP & I decided to do a med switch to 60mg MST Continus
(MSContin) twice day & 20mg Oramorph every 4hrs for BT. instead of increase
of OxyContin like done in the past.
Again some of you aware I had massive allergic reaction
to Morphine & My GP switched me back to OxyContin same dosage as before &
OxyNorm same dosage but twice daily, Hoping the med break from Oxycodone would
have washed out of my system with Morphine & Oxycodone would start to take
of edge my pain on good days (Never helped on bad days)...........unfortunately
it didn’t help, OxyContin wasn't taking the edge but when I took BT I was got between 40-60mins where
it took edge off the pain on good days.
Over week ago I saw my GP to see how I’m was
getting on with switch back, see how I was feeling since what happened with
Morphine & Oxycodone.........My GP has increase OxyContin to 60mg &
OxyNorm 10mg when needed for BT.
I’m still adjusting to the new dosage plus I’m been
having afew really rough days because I become Godmother to my Beautiful Niece.
The Christening took it out of me. Once I’ve got over Christening I’m hoping
the increase will help to edge of my pain........I have another appointment in 2wks
time for update.
Jane (Fusiongirl) if you read this, I hope you are
feeling alittle better & surgery has help hun?.......To the answer to your
question the other week, I asked my Dr if I’m Allergic or Sensitive to
Morphine, the answer was........Yes, I’m allergic to Morphine I can’t have it
again. My GP advice me to get Medical alert bracelet/necklace in case of
emergency (I.C.E). TBH I should has got one before now with all my allergies
& health conditions but I never thought about it until my GP said.
Hope everyone having a low pain day.
Much Love to you all
