Discussions that mention morphine

Hi Again,

Yeah, I hear that "Oxy", is some dangerous stuff.
I was offered it before, but turned it down, after I heard some stories of how potent it is.
I'm sure I'll be up for the morphine next Friday, but I can't take that home, so I 'll continue with the Vicodin for now.

I guess the "Oxy" is terrible to come off of.

I have also heard that the implanted pumps work great for pain, I just don't know anything about how they are inserted.
Actually if I were in the same situation as you, I would also go for the pump, rather than to have to repeat surgery.
You have already been through too much pain.

Please keep in touch, and let me know what you decide.

Take care,
Baxter :)
