I tore my shoulder over a year ago and am still looking at 6 months at least for surgery. I have been living in constant pain as I am allergic to all codeine and morphine drugs... so no percocet, tylenol #2 or #3, endocet, oxycocet... and over the counter meds do nothing for me. In the hospital I can use demerol shots for a few days then they stop working. Apparently I just metabolise stuff quickly or become allergic. I am at the end of my wits!! What is still out there that I can use? I do not like all the side effects to Lipitor so no go. Please help!!
