I have been on oxycodone drug for 2 1/2 years.. still on it because of chronic back pain.. I went on it for my last knee replacement. I was doing great before that as I got myself off of zanax and Vicodin.. I was a mess.. I was afraid to have knee replacement because I knew that meant going on opiads. After 2 1/2 years I still am on them as I have degenerative disc and stenosis of the spinal cord and bulging discs. I want to get off but the pain is intense.. I feel like I am in a life of hell. I am trying ablasion surgery on my back and hope it helps the nerve pain.. I have worked hard all my life..and wore out my back and knees. The doctor is reducing my oxycodone and it isn't enough to help with my pain...any suggestions.. Tylenol ibuprofen doesn't work.
