Discussions that mention oxycontin

Back Problems board


First I will have the mylegram and then we will decide the best surgical action. He is telling me to start planning on being down for 6 months. Right now I will just take it one day at a time.

The hardest part has been the incredible pain. When I told him about walking to the mailbox (300 ft) yesterday landing me laying down for 1 1/2 hours. That is when he said, no more walking except to go to the bathroom and put me under alot of restrictions. YIKES. I should have kept my mouth shut.

I am glad that he is going to do the CT Myelgram and hopefully it will reveal everything but he did tell me that he might not know the extent of the surgery until he is in. DOUBLE YIKES.

Thanks for being here for me. I may need to lean on you alot in the weeks to come. This is totally depressing me.

I was told the medication would help with nerve pain. Unfortunately, I am allergic to everything else (Neurotin, Elavil). He told me he would NEVER perscribe oxycontin and topomax. Very interesting. He thinks oxycontin is something I should definitely not go on. He told me to research it indepth.
