I fell down embankment landed hard on cement on tale bone 2004 had disk removed and fusion 2004. I have done everything. I was placed on 30th morphine tabs 2 times a day with 5 my oxicoton for break through pain. My pain has been managed with only 1 morphine first thing in the morning and only use oxicoton 1 at a time when needed maybe 2 or 3 pills a week this has kept me pretty much pain free for almost 2 years. My Doctor has moved and the new doctor has taken me off my meds and gave me an anti-inflammatory. I hope it works I don't want to go through all these tries again. I don't know what to do?
