This was just like reading my own words. I had to stop working 7/05 after putting up a good fight I couldnt take it anymore the pain was dibilitating. I switched from a management position at a job I had been at for 6 years to another company as a standard agent. I lost my long term disabiliity and the job change did not help at all. I could/can not sit up for longer than 2 hours the pain in my pelivs, lower ab and back kill me. I break out in sweats and get very nauses from the pain. I had a heating pad in my pants and was laying down in the car during my breaks. All the fears I had then I am living now. After 2 years of being a guinea pig with every cocktail imaginable outside of oxycotin (Im so scared of that medication). Ive been on Duregesic/Fentalyn patches from 25mcg to 100 mcg's with everything from Vicodin to Methadone for breakthrough, nothing worked for me. Now Im on Roxicodone 30mg every 2 hours and Oxydose 2ML at bed time and when I wake up. I have a high tolerence after the last 2 years. You will be started out at lower dosages because the doctor needs to gage your pain. Keep a log for yourself and the doctor. Good Luck...

I know how you feel, I have had 23 surgeries, and I have needed one for awhile now, but I guess they are wantin 1600 upfront because my insurance didn't pay all of it last time because of bein out of state, but I have been on pain meds for awhile, they do help somedays, somedays I really have a very hard time even on my meds, I couldnt go without them though because my pain is so bad also, I havent had a life in many years, I havent even been able to be the mother I want to be because of this. I really wish that medical people would listen to the doctors that do know about this disease, and it is a disease, I have went to a few different pain docs and I am goin to someone I really really like she understand my disease she has looked up stuff on adhesions so she can try to help me more, I really think that you need to get in now to see someone so you dont lose your job and all your freedom like I have, good luck to you.
