I never did answer you and I apologize. I’m in 30mg OxyContin bid and Percocet 10mg qid for breakthrough pain. I have the following disease states:
Irritable Bowel Disease
Small Intestinal Resection
Traumatic Osteoarthritis in my left knee
Complete and total right knee replacement of my right knee
Torn rotator cuff in left shoulder
Torn rotator cuff in right shoulder
Ruptured and separated labrum surrounding right shoulder
Right wrist carpal tunnel
High Risk for Infectious C. difficile Colitis (hx of infections so far)
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 2 (Causalgia)
Symptoms include severe neurological, nerve, and physical pain including muscle cramps, joint pain, migraines, stomach cramps, hand and foot pain, hip and back pain, mobility limitations, and sensitivity to touch. Heat and cold changes to the body- areas affected by pain can change by more than 1-2 degrees.
I also have a DRG Spinal Cord Stimulator from Abbott/St. Jude which handles approximately 20-25% of my Pain load on Good days, 10-15% on average days, less on bad.
My total pain management covers about 40% of the pain load.
