I currently take 2- 80mg and 2-60mg Oxycontin pills aday and 4-30mg pills of Roxicodone pills 8 times aday, for pain I live with constant pain and have for 16 years I have had multiple back surgeries (8) and numerous other surgeries (aorta, bypass, and bifemoral artery bypass surgery) I have been taking this amount of pain medication for years I have been on pain meds since 1995 I know I am addicted to the pills I have tried to stop taking them on my own and the withdrawls are unbearable I end up in the hospital. I start having withdrawl symptoms if I don't start my pills by 9:00am I take my last does about 8:00pm and goto bed about 10 or 11:00pm. I have talked to my Dr. about it and he is not concerned so I guess this is normal I had the same problem as a lot of people with everybody telling me that my Dr. is a quack and he's killing me with the amount of my dose I'm a drug addict and all the nonsense that you get from people who don't know what its like to live with pain that you will have for the rest of your life. It was real bad for me because I was a police officer, I had to retire when I started the oxycontin I was the Chief of Police. So I know what illegal drug users will do to get ahold of these pills and what they do to get them it still makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong and feel like everybody is talking about me and judging me. I guess I'm at the point where my body has grown used to my dose of medicine, I really don't want to take more what I am really looking for is an outside opinion about my options. My pain level is an average of 8-9 sometimes its literally unbearable. Any thoughts opinions or advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Carl
