I have severe scoliosis and have had 4 major back surgeries. I just want to know it is okay for me to take, or should I ask for a different pain medicine. I have been on pain meds for about 20 years, so I know I am limited and running out of choices.
Opana is okay but that is a round the clock med. see if your doc. will prescribe something for the breakthrough pain. Meaning if the opana isn't working so well like you will feel pain time from time even on the opana you need also a short acting narcotic to have continuous pain relief like norco.
