Good morning all, it's my first time posting here though I have been reading for a long time. I have a failed L5-S1 fusion that healed crooked Leaving the nerves constantly rubbing causing tremendous back pain/leg pain. I am five years postop and have seen many specialists hoping for an answer but most have told me that it is what it is basically.
So here is my question I have been on 60mg twice a day ofMS Contin (morphine sulfate ER) for about two years with moderate pain relief but decent amounts of breakthrough pain And 5 mg Percocet to take the edge off the breakthrough. Last Wednesday night I started taking Opana 20 mg ER. Doc said it was equivalently the same, so had me take my morning dose of MS Contin and then in the evening take the Opana. Friday afternoon I started to have some serious breakthrough pain, which transpired into me being almost completely useless all day Saturday and so far this morning.
I can't seem to catch up on the pain. Anyone else ever have this problem?View Thread
