    I was 15 just finished my first year of vaesity cheering with my friends not knowing one month later the most in shape person in the school would battle leukemia for 3 years. Even afteri finished chemo I was so worn out, I was as white as a ghost and probably lost half my friends those years cuz I wasnt allowed out of the hospital. When I did leave I did try to move on with my life. Impatient for chemo was given a drug called vin cristine thats what I call aftee they put the amount of fluid they would give to a diabetes person the pain started an hour after went for three weeks no break. Unless someone has expericenced vin cristine bone pain u can not rate higher then a 9 im sorry. My cancer drs who are the best in all of wi said that it was going make me cry I broke a nurses hand squuezing all on iv morphine. I had too do that 3 weeks out of every mo th one week break for three years. And I was 15 makes me cry thinking about it because it was so trmatic I have post tramatic stress disorder fron the whole thing. Anyways after cancer they found a vascular necrosis in the bottom of my spine right by both hips and both femurs are covered the whole thing. So I have been on every narcotic pain medicine and non narcotiic. I found that methadone comes in second its cheap and it helps rekax slightly, also works pretty good with bones il give it a 7 5 for all u who like to use oxys there pain relief isnt nearly as good and tolerance builds ten times faster. No I found that opana 40 mg 6 pills a day and 6 10 mg oxymorphone ir work out standing its been three years or even more and tolrrance hasnt gone up. For u people think oxys remain king of the pain med market give it a year they will be passes up. I would bet on itm if anyone has questions on any opioid pain medicince just ask ive been on 3. 4th of them. Thanks

    Hi, I live with RSD pain 24/7.... I had a horse break my back at T10 T 11....I just changed my Medication to Nucynta for break through I was on oxy...for break through pain....All I can say is WOW Nucynta 100mg q 6 hrs..and Methadone 10mg x 5 a day

    The Nucynta has worked wonders and I don't feel a flighty as I did when my break through was RSD is still a lot of pain but its down in the 5 or 6 level I also have a SCS and love it..RSD is in left part of body .....babbled enough check it out if u have RSD or back pain takes a few days to adjust .

    I've never even heard of opana. I started with methadone, and now on morphine. Neither of them does much for me, I have nerve damage on right side. The Lyrica they added, seems to help with the burning pain better than the opioids?

    Now, i'm off to find out about this opana.
