@healingone I am very careful. All my doctors including those at the Mayo Clinic know about my pain. I have one doctor responsible for prescribing oxycodone. I take a low dose. Most times it is every 6 hours. I sometimes can skip doses or take a half of a dose. I had thumb surgery two weeks ago and had to up the oxycodone to every 4 hours and added Tylenol into the regiment for a few days. I am back to normal dosage now. I keep my medications out of reach of my grandchildren and some other guest that enter my home.
