    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Hi! I hope this finds you feeling better I know finding the right meds are hard. I agree with fentanyl being strong...have they considered Oxycontin? Same Med as Percocet without acetomenophen and last 8-12 hour so 2-3 a day and then something like norco for breakthrough pain? They also have oxycodone that goes to 30mg.without acetomenophen and seems to work better without it in it. Good luck
