I have severe neck pain since a failed cerv fusion in 2005. Been thru tons of meds, injections, and alt therapies. My new pain management dr has suggested roxanol since norco no longer helps.. What to do???

Roxanol is morphine which is a stronger opiate than Norco (hydrocodone with acetominophen). It is prescribed for moderate to severe pain and comes in two formulas, immediate release and extended release. I would try the Roxanol and see if it brings you the relief you deserve. You are opiate tolerant at this point and are going to have to take a stronger opiate to get this relief.
What are you scared of exactly?
