oh no! I didn't realize I deleted the end of my post..sorry:) I had a complication so the surgery wasn't as successful as it should've been, but it appears I do get the malabsorption problems that come with it. I now have chronic pain from three failed foot fusion surgeries and am now dealing with a torn hamstring too:( I'm taking 15 mg of Opana ER and getting no relief. I also have oxycodone for breakthrough pain. My PM doctor is willing to prescribe Fentanyl but my insurance takes forever so we are trying to find an Opana dose that might work. I'm wondering if anyone takes doses higher than 15? How often? Does it work? Thanks! Sorry about the incomplete post!
You did not finish your question so I am not sure I am answering BUT, extended release medications like Opana ER are often not as effective in those with gastric bypass. You would be better served with an immediate release medication. Opana is available, which is immediate release unlike Opana ER which is extended release. If that doesnt answer your question, please add the rest of your question. :)
