    Hi Janet,

    Could you tell me a bit more about Kadian as my general doc is reluctant to give me anything anymore as my stomach is shot from side affects. Usually, if i bring him some info I've researched on my own, he might try me on it, but I rarely resond like a normal person. Also, could you tell me what you are taking for break throgh pain?

    ////much appreciated.

    Thanks Janet,

    The info helps immensely!! I have a reversed spinal curve and horrible back pain that was all from a worker's comp injury 17 yrs ago. Last years accident broke and tore my collarbone; punctured and collapsed my lung; broke 8 ribs; broke the L4 vertabrae; broke my ankle; and I suffered a major brain trauma that has left me within short term memory loss (which is good for arguments...the hubbie doesn't have to apologize as he knows if he waits the average of 48-72 hours, I will forget it anyway). The increased pressure on my low back and legs as the result of healing without exercising and starting the horror weight drug Lyrica, is so bad now that I chew darvocet like candy along with muscle relaants and added tylenol along with requip for the "seems like" symptoms of RLS. the apin has grown to such a degree that my daughter just lost her job because I was so stiff, sleep deprived, and sick from the meds that I couldn't watch my two grandsons (7 months and 3)and there are no alternative sitters. nothing like a serving of GUILT to go with the pain!!

    Again, thanks for the info, eeven if it means fighting with the insurance company to approve a apin specialist! I did the rheumatologist early one and the predisone put over 30 pounds on me in less than 6 weeks, and I had an extremely active eating disorder at that time!
