    Well I'm gonna be honest with you, trying to get drug free with an upcoming surgery and arthritis doesn't sound to promising. It sounds like you may need them, obviously only about 20% of what you're currently taking though. Do you have a girlfriend/wife/mother/brother/sister who could possibly dispense them for you? You really only need 1 of those bottles and really not even that much, but unless you can muster up the self control, which most addicts can't you need to find someone to help keep you on the correct dose. I don't know what kind of quack doctor would pump out that many pills for arthritis but that is ridiculous.

    Kid.....
    Hearing you here. I was on a high dose of fentanyl patches and had become tolerant. It was for legitimate reasons that I was on them, but when you become tolerant it's a miserable, horrible, awful, despairing place to be, no matter the reason you got there. I was going into constant detox all the time. I was so horribly miserable that I finally jumped off the patches.
    Once I was off all the opiates, I found that my "real pain" was nothing compared to the pain caused by the opiates. I truly never knew that opiates literally create pain themselves.
    I understand why....if a person thought there was no way out....the total despair would get to them, well, I would do what I did b4 I ever did something like your friends.
    I'm sure you are miserable and scared.
    In order to jump off the merry go round, you need to get off the opiates to find out your true pain level. Relatively speaking you will be shocked, that it's much less than when on opiates and tolerant!
    Since you have surgery coming up.....you can't go the sub route unless the surgery is not for a few months????
    Going CT isn't fun.....but you can do it......lots and lots of us have.
    Do you already have the links for the sub induction and also the link for the Thomas recipe if you go CT?
    If not I will be glad to post them for you.
    After you get off the opiates....with your doctor's help....or not.....you then need to re-evaluate your pain level then make a plan with your doctor.....you don't want to become tolerant again.
    If you go to a stronger opiate you will just get to the same place again and it will be even harder to detox.
    Hope this helps.
    If you have more questions, please, just ask. If you need the links I spoke of let me know.
    Best to you!
    Marian

    Default marian thank you

    yes i know what you mean yhey do make your pain worse with the meds so if you could post those llinks for the ideas that you have it would be great and i will use them as soon as i can but im probably gona have the surgery in about 4-6 weeks so defiently not gona go through that again with no meds this will be my second back surgey and also have had elbow nerve surgey and then in next 6 months will have my neck done with surgery also and the arthritis doctor im trying to get into has almost a year waiting list there are not many in town so that is another problem but my main goal is to hopefully get off the oxycodone and maybe go on methadone that help alot for pain and you dont get a buzz from them at least that what i have heard since i will need to be on some type of meds more than likely the rest of my life i am on social security so its not a bunch of bs i am in bad shape and do need meds its just i dont need the amount i am takeing thats why i wonder how i can control my pain that i have and not take tons of pills for rest of my life at least to the degree that i am abusing them i just want to be normal thats all and if have to tolerate a bit of pain willing to do that but not the pain thats so bad i cant walk wwith no meds at all i tried that and have stopped pills completly not a single pill for 5 days one time and 4 days another so i can do it but its the mental part that i know if take the pill ill feel much better no pain and then i go rite back to same old ways agter a week or so can do good for few days and take as perscribed but then go nuts just wish was way to not do that let me know what you think marian thanks in advance

    Kid,
    I hate to think what all those pills are doing to your insides. I know a guy who was snorting Oxy and drinking. He died in November because it screwed up his pancreas. 60 years old. I have had two back fusions, three jaw surgeries, and I am also on disability. But I made up my mind to come off the drugs because I thought they were making me feel worse than I already did. There is truth to rebound pain from the pain pills. I actually think my pain is less now that I am off the Oxycontin. It will never be gone but I can tolerate it if I pace myself. I have other bad levels in my back and they want to do more surgery. I am trying to hold off because I know that would mean more drugs. UGGH! Withdrawals are not for the weak and I used to think I was a pretty strong person but somedays are still horrible. One good thing is I can now think with a clear mind instead of being in a fog. The shaky feeling drives me insane. I can't imagine that it lasts this long but it does. I think the Oxycontin might have messed with my nerve endings. I don't shake but I just feel like I am shaking from the inside out, if that makes sense? I don't sleep over a few hours a night, never nap, and very wired. My doctor says she don't know how I function but I figure it is nervous energy. Whatever it is....it sucks!
    Take Care,
    BB
