I feel like a pest but now I'd like to ask about what others are taking for pain? My surgeon, who from the beginning said he does not like to prescribe pain meds for long periods of time - he relies on a team of physicians (pain docs for pain) or the patients family physician. This makes perfect sense to me. I was on Oxycodone 5/325 mgs for about 4 months (maybe a bit more). Now I'm off to my family doc to discuss pain meds and would like to know if anything else is working for others that is not a narcotic? I have no concerns about addiction as I have not become addicted but doctors just don't like to prescribe narcotics for long periods of time and I am in too much pain at this point to experiment. Would like to go to my appointment with some knowledge and feedback from other patients. Anything anyone can tell me would be appreciated.
