Many of you know I'm following pain management with my surgeon because I'm still not under control and off steroids for a host of reasons.
Anyway, my question is this: Is there something else available besides 7.5 hydrocodone to 325 acetametaphine? It's not the acetametaphine I'm worried about, but the hydrocodone. Loratab is 7.5/500. The reason I'm asking is I've been on them since July, and they are wearing their effectiveness off, which scares me to death, but I don't know how to function. I can take 3 Norco (7.5/325) every 6 hours on a bad day, which I have had to do twice today. I just don't care for narcotics, but I don't know what else I can do.
Guess I need to call the docs again. I see my GI in a week and my surgeon in about 3 more weeks.
