Iam a 47yowm who had a c3-c7 fusion in 2009- and multiple surgeries for lower back neurostimulator (MRSA iinfection) and have 4 bulging lumbar disc with arthritis. They tell me I will always have pain, is that correct? I have a pain management doctor and presently on Opana 20mg- ER every 8 hours as needed every 8 hours along wit Percocet 10/325 mg with Opana.This is really old. Also I have a history of polysubstance addiction and have been clean for 4 years even with pain meds (I use them as medication and not a drug). I would love to hear from yall and if yall have any tips on other pain med control.
