Have you tried diclofenac- I had 12 major surgeries to put me back together again after I was hurt as a Marine. I do not abuse my meds ever, and I voluntarily went from ms contin than fentanyl because I don't want to be too doped up. I am now an exec at a company. Anyhow- I recently had my left knee replaced for a second time and the surgeon prescribed the above, and it is a very strong NSAID, but boy does it help.
Hi my friend Basslady! How is it going? Have you made any headway in finding your best option for inpatient care? Let me know how you are doing. hugs
Hi I am a 39yr old male from mass n have been on opiates for 10+yrs for a severe back injury in my late 20s. The day of the injury I was immediately put on oxycodone n OxyContin,(not knowing what these would do)to help me walk n to stop the crying I could not because of the pain, besides they were docs n had my best interest in mind, right? I was wrong, this went on for months till 1 day the doc goes I think ur addicted n I cutting u off(messed up, I know), mind you I come from a family that never has even seen drugs let alone done them so I had no clue what I was in for, then the hell started, I had some money saved up which I ended up blowing in meds to feel normal n eventually was out of money n my head so I found a doc that would fast track me what they called methadone at the time(which I knew nothing about), fast forward to the present n hear I am 10yrs later addicted to 120mg methadone a day n 3mg ativan to help w stomach issues n miserable , oh and I have 9yr old son that I love so much n wanna be better for. I was recently thinking about that rapid detox everyone is talking about n I have heard some horror stories but no good ones, is it really that bad of a idea for people on dose like I am? Also only place I found that did it was the Waissman Method at a hospital in California, or a Canadian clinoc(bunch up there) or Mexice(no thanks). If anyone has any help for me or questions please please feel free to post or Direct Message me.
Sincerely Brian from Mass
Hi Diane, welcome to the forum. Wow, you are so calm and articulate about this situation!! It sounds like you have a good and understanding doctor. Where do they think you should go? They've recommended this to you so should be able to provide some thoughts on locations. Otherwise, I'd use your search bar and put in your address or close to your zip code with the exact specifications you are looking for. You should pull up a list that way and begin making calls to them. Your insurance company (would this go through insurance?) may also be able to direct you. Let me know what you find out. I am sure you are really scared about this process sweetie. I feel for you.
