HEP C w/Low back pain L5 S1. Currently on oxycontin 40mg but it's not working anymore.
You may do alright with a morphine based pain killer such as MS Contin (morphine sulfate) as it is primarily excreted via the kidneys. Although, as with any drug, caution should be taken to guard against unanticipated accumulation if renal and/or hepatic function is seriously impaired.
Based on personal experience, I have a friend with Hep C and she had a morphine pump for many years for pain. MS Contin comes in a slow release pill that would offer around the clock pain control. Might be worth discussing with the doctor.
