Re: help needed truely unsure what to do
I agree. I would express to your doctor that your pain levels are up, and you especially notice that the Oxycontin does not last 12 hours (it is well known that many need to take it every 8 hours). Sounds like its time for some med changes. So have they ever tried you on adjunct type meds like Neurontin, Lyrica, Cymbalta, etc, and if so, are you on anything currently? Its rare / inappropriate to use opiates by themselves to manage pain. Best wishes.
