After a lumbar fusion surgery at the age of 14 and another surgery a year ago which I consider a failed surgery, I'm in more pain than I have ever been in everyday chronic 24/7. Been on oxycodone for four years. It seems to be less effective than when I first started taking it.
I was switched from oxycodone 30 mg IR 6x a day to oxycontin(reformulated) 60 mg 2x a day with 2 30mg oxycodone IR for breakthrough pain and it barely works with tons of breakthrough pains and the oxycontin is weak and only lasts 6 hours opposed to 12 like it should. See my doctor tomorrow and want to bring up oxymorphone.
I'm desperately in need of finding an effective painkiller to have some sort of life and relief from all this pain. Which one is more effective in your opinions, considering my situation? Thanks for reading. Any advice would be appreciated
