    I'm really behind in thanking you guys, but thank you. The last time I posted, I told you all that my meds weren't working as well as they should be, and that oxy was not an option.
    I was up to 8 hydrocodone 10/500 per day and was really getting nervous with possible liver damage at that dose. I had been on it for 1 1/2 years. I called my pain management DR. and he told me to come in so we could talk. Imagine my surprise whe he said that we should talk! Alot of meds have a funky effect on me, therefore, I can't take them.
    When I saw him he was going over my chart and suggested Kadian, 50mgs twice a day. Then I could take the hydrocodone for breakthrough pain.
    It took me a little bit to get feeling better, and I'm down to 3 or 4 hydro's a day. I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still alive and had made it through that horrible ordeal. We all know that pain isn't something we want to live with. Thanks again.

    Regards,

    Ellen
