How much percocet?

Anyone that visited to old message board knows that I have surgery for ovarian cysts....well, they're back. I am not gonna need surgery again, but I can't handle the pain. I was told that I could take advil or tylenol, but it doesn't help. I was told that if it didn't help then I could take percocet.....How much percocet is needed to get rid of the pain?!...not just the physical, but also the mental! (If you get my drift).

If your looking to get your mind screwed up, take this is highly addicitive !!
There are much better pain meds that are not addictive. I know this from PERSONAL experience.

Try Methadone. It's cheap and it works for me anyway. I have chronic pancreatitis and it is very painful and the methadone knocks it for a loop. Demeral is a good one to get but you will have a hard time getting it because it is so addictive.
as ever

Sounds like you need to see your doctor and get your meds changed, if you are taking meds. Cysts can be painful, I have a lady friend who has had to have 4 operations but she is doing fine now. Are you also under hormonal therapy? That sometimes will prevent additional cysts from occuring. In any case a visit to your doctor sounds right.

Re: How much percocet?

Please don't think of taking Percocet on a regular basis for pain. It's highly addictive and you'll end up with bigger problems. You'll probably get cut off by your doctor at some point and have your life revolve around getting more any way you can.

There are alternatives. You shouldn't have to live with pain. Have you tried pain management therapy? Have you tried more homeopathic remedies such as accupunture or accupressure? I know it might sound crazy, but it might work!

Take care.

Re: How much percocet?

Dear Jen,
I to suffer from daily chronic pain. I have had a 3 year long running script for percacet or vicodin. There have been days where that doesn't touch the pain and I have had to go to er for demerol, or morphine, or dilaudid, etc. It has gotten to where I can no longer work and life just isn't the same. There are times when I have felt suicidal. Please talk to your dr. I talked to mine. I am glad I did level with him. I am on an antidepressent and it makes a major difference. Also counceling can help for major illnesses also even when there is no cure or end in site. It can make life liveable. Please talk to your dr. today.
