- opana, opana er, pain
Had a lumbar fusion 2 years ago that has left me in more pain than before operation. Was on perc 10 4 times a day for so long, they no longer worked- after trial and error today my pain mgt doc placed me on the above combination- The pain in my back and hips is so bad I had to apply for disability last year, which I did win, just for the medical ins.. I want to get to a point where my pain is managed enough so that I can return to work and get off disability- i'm an immigration paralegal, and have bee offered work by an attorney who will allow me to work at home- first I have to get to where I can sit at a computer for at least 4-6 hrs a day.
Would walking help?
rain69, Yes, it is to me! In fact I think this is an excellent combination because you are taking meds for breakthrough pain also. It is a combination of oxycodone = the roxicodone and oxymorphone = opana ER which means extended relief.
Walking will definitely help. So will building upper body strength. I had the same operation due to a shattered L-1 and fractured L-2, permanent nerve damage.. Congrats on winning the disability. Mine is on appeal. Worked my entire life and now I'm at the mercy of our government. I need additional surgery and my surgeon said there is no way you will be going to work at any physically demanding job again. As to your question, the meds you have are very good for pain. But if you are on the right dose of the extended release meds, you should rarely, if ever, need the breakthrough meds. Glad to hear your motivated enough to return to doing some type of work! Wish you well,
i believe that something long acting would be better for you would need less pills like oc80 twice a day wth opana ir for bt
