Help please w/ med change (norco to morphine)

Hi. This is my first post. I so understand and feel for everyone here dealing with pain every day! It is so draining to say the least!

I'm looking for thoughts about my current change in meds. I've been taking Norco 10/325 (2 pills 4x/day~max 8 total/day) for probably 8 or 9 years. It just doesn't cut it anymore. She's putting me on Morphine, but wants to go w/ the IR to see how I do before trying SR. So, she started me with 15mg 3x per day and I can take max 4 Norco (for BT) per day now.
I'm hurting!! Does this seem like an appropriate dose/change to morphine to start or I'm just a baby?? It's just a struggle to go 8 hours theoretically (not counting sleep time of course) between morphine doses ~ it just doesn't help that long. And I pretty much need 2 norco at a time to kill the BT pain and I can only take that twice/day. Do I just suffer through this for another 2 weeks until I talk to her again?? and we hopefull change to long acting???

Any thoughts/suggestions would be so appreciated! TIA!
