Hey LAF ~

HAPPY EASTER!

Hey, I was just wondering where your family got their medical degrees?? :eek: I think your surgeon knows best when it comes to pain meds and whether you're going to become addicted.

I read on the Addiction board and I know people do become addicted every day to drugs like oxycontin and such...but I can't figure out how they do it. Now that prescriptions are computerized, it is a lot more difficult for someone to go to multiple doctors to get multiple prescriptions...and all the drug stores are now hooked together so they can tell if someone is abusing the system. Plus, if I take two of my oxycodine pills I go into a drugged stupor where I sleep and sleep. I can't imagine taking 4 or 5 at a time.

So just listen to your doc and tell your family to look somewhere else to create controversy.:D
