Reducing your meds over there in the pain clinic?. I wonder why should they do that.
Do they have in australia morphine tablets/pills?. (mscontin, avinza, kadian).
I've never tried them but people here say it helps them and it's better than the oxycontin an/or the patch. If they don't have those in australia, you should ask for morphine injection, this should help, I hope?. You should ask your primary care physician and see what he say?.
Something really must be done. You must take charge here.
As I see, no doctor over there has a little compassion over your situation. It's cause they never experience chronic pain, that's why. Let them FEEL it for a day and they will shout. As matt(a member here)has said, they are smart and educated but they have no idea what it means to live like that.
So allan, if you can, go for morphine. I don't see any other options for you, honestly. Together with percocet or what they have over there similiar to percocet for breakthrough pain.
Good luck for now. Let us know how you doing.
