Thank you, Raine.
Back and hence leg = horrible. I just use pain meds to the max. My doc has given me permission to exceed the "standard" doses because he knows they
are just not helping much. He knows I won't do anything too stupid. So I am writing this while under two times the (so-called) "standard" oxycodone
dose, plus using secondary opiates (fentanyl and tremabine) to help relieve the pain -- but all with my doctor's advice and guidance. And as you can
see, it has virtually no effect on my mental capabilities. However, at least at this level of dosage, the pain is bearable.
The problem is that there is no such thing as an "average" person: that is just a statistical construct and every doctor will consider their patient
according to real-world conditions, not some chart of averages. My tolerance to these opiates is stupidly high for some reason, so the "standard" dose
does almost nothing for me.
However -- and this is vitally important
-- I am taking my doses according to my doctor's guidance
. No-one should ever use prescription
meds of such strength (ie, potentially fatal opiate overdose if you get it wrong), without their doctor's advice and very specific guidance!
Just consider the coding I had to insert into this post. Most people would be off in fairy land (nice place!
) just with my basic opiate, let alone
the two others I am also using. But I am still keeping track of everything I take (I note it all down) and will not go over what my doc has advised:
better to suffer some pain for a while than feel nothing forever by getting the treatment wrong!
I wrote the above to help others. I know what really bad pain is like. So do you, Raine. But you also know that the strongest drugs to kill pain can
also kill people. I am writing this post under the influence of three very powerful opiates, but I'm fine -- because I am strictly following the
advice of a very highly qualified MD.
Meanwhile, we had a good day. Dada is doing okay and I was able to get a load of washing done and hang it up to dry. Without the meds my doc
prescribed -- and his advice on how I may use them -- I couldn't have done anything today.
