Oxycontin for IBS

So... after 25 years of misery and trying most everything under the sun for my IBS, my doctor put me on Oxycontin to relieve the pain and helped me after much discussion and warning about possible abuse of the drug. Then my doctor put me on a schedule to taper off of the drug. At first I had some cramping, but we basically game my body about 5 months to repair so to speak, and kept my diet to very simple foods, no sauces and very little fat. I now take my daily probiotic of about 30billion cultures per day and I feel good for the first time in years.

The oxycontin is very addicting so it's typically not something a doctor will prescribe but it sure helped me to just go about my daily drill for a few months with hardly any pain. Now I just have to watch my diet and take my daily probiotics.
