I have not posted here in quite some time due to my divorce, 3rd fusion surgery, and having to move 5 times...ugh!
But I wanted to write real quick to answer that you were probably so sick due to horrible withdrawls from being on the Oxycontin and then the Dr. switching you to a much lesser potent narcotic. Were you on true Oxycontin? Or oxycodone with apap? (generic for Percocet?) If you were on extended release Oxy at 160mg a day...that was a HUGE drop for your system and was totally irresponsible to make you suffer such awful withdrawls without titrating you....
I am so glad that your Primary is taking care of you now....Gosh...I hate to see stories like this and the whole time that Dr. knew exactly what you were on, and that what they were giving you was probably like a 75% decrease so quickly and of course you would be sick as a dog!!!!
Anyway, it's such a lesson for all of us to make sure exactly what a Dr. is prescribing for us....
