Re: morphine sulfate ER to replace OxyContin? HELP!

Oh, I forgot to mention that I had X-rays taken back in October after my fall. I ignored the pain from the fall for about 10 days (thinking it just hurt because I fell and would heal) until I had a BM that was basically just dark, red blood. The last orthopedic surgeon I saw (the one who said it might get better in 10 years or so...) ordered two MRIs, lumbar and sacrum/coccyx. The lumbar MRI showed desiccation and height loss at L3-4 and L4-5, as well as multiple ovarian cysts (I have PCOS and my husband and I have struggled with infertility, so that was no big surprise). The sacrum/coccyx MRI showed "severe anterior angulation of the coccyx" (Duh...). Just wanted to give a complete picture of where I am. Thanks again.
