I am in a nursing home in Ohio. I have been on dialysis eight years and in end stage renal failure. Both my kidneys were removed 4 years ago. I also have renal osteoarthritis severe in both knees. I also have neuropathy in both my legs. I am in a wheelchair because of the severity of it and am unable to walk because of it. It is also starting in my other joints as well. The weather is getting colder and I asked if my medicine could be changed to more often a day or change the med all together because it's not working as well. I get a Oxycodin 5 every six hours. The doctor here said he can't do nothing because of the laws. The laws say I'm not in pain. I want to know if and what can be done.
