36 years in nursing. Went to pain clinic every month for back/ shoulder injections until I have lots of adhesions. Tylenol/ IBP shut down my kidneys/bowels liver and caused me to have pancreatitis and perforated ulcer in my stomach. Was put on hydrocodone at Barnes hospital in St. Louis but doctors in this area will not refill it. Now on disability.
