I have recently moved and went to see a pain managemnt DR that is more up to date then my pain management dr in my other state. He said every 2 years a person on oxycontin needs to have their system cleaned out in order to reset the reciptators in your body. I agree now I have had time to think about it. makes sense. I have lived with chronic pain since 2005 2006 it got worse and spread threw my body. I am lookingforwaed to see if my body can handle what pain it has. But I am also scared of hurting like I did without my pain meds. But how will I know how it will be unless I try. It is like having to start over because he needs to see for himself in order to take over my treatment. I understand he is like in the middle of my medical records and need to be sure himself if pain meds are right for my treatment. I hope I don't have a hard time getting off these in a 4 month trial period as he told me. Anybody with suggestions to help cope mentally and physically?View Thread
