Added 2 Oct 2009:
I am a para of 26 years and regained feeling, and chronic pain. I am very active and unforuntaly I have 2 herniated disc as well. With shooting pain down my leg. My cord was not cut, but I have a very small blood clot or bruise in the cord that is disolving and that is why I am getting things back. I am able to go to the bathroom, no cathers, or bowl issues. I have had 3 kids naturaly, yeah!! My neuroligist said I am a merical! Saddly, he passed away as well as my surgen. So I see a family doctor and she is not a pain specialist. And I live in a small town and we don't have a pain doctor anymore, he left to go to a big city. Hope all this helps.
Opana ER would be my guess. Just as well you can't take the fentanyl as it's not a good drug to take chronically. It can cause severe mental issues even with younger patients
Here's some basic info on oxymorphone.
WARNING: OPANA ER contains oxymorphone, which is a morphine-like opioid agonist and a Schedule II controlled substance, with an abuse liability similar to other opioid analgesics.
Oxymorphone can be abused in a manner similar to other opioid agonists, legal or illicit. This should be considered when prescribing or dispensing OPANA ER in situations where the physician or pharmacist is concerned about an increased risk of misuse, abuse, or diversion.
OPANA ER is an extended-release oral formulation of oxymorphone indicated for the management of moderate to severe pain when a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic is needed for an extended period of time.
OPANA ER is NOT intended for use as an as needed analgesic.
OPANA ER TABLETS are to be swallowed whole and are not to be broken, chewed, dissolved, or crushed. Taking broken, chewed, dissolved, or crushed OPANA ER TABLETS leads to rapid release and absorption of a potentially fatal dose of oxymorphone.
Patients must not consume alcoholic beverages, or prescription or nonprescription medications containing alcohol, while on OPANA ER therapy. The co-ingestion of alcohol with OPANA ER may result in increased plasma levels and a potentially fatal overdose of oxymorphone. Hope this helps... Dave
