What is the prognosis for osteonecrosis with cervical spine collapse?
If Oxycodone doesn’t control your pain, ask your doctor to revert to morphi
I am so sorry to hear about this progressive and extensive bone loss and all the accompanying disease conditions and pains you are experiencing.
There is nothing more terrible to do than failing to appropriately address your pain.
While there is a strong regulation on prescribing and dispensing opioids in the USA, you are a perfect fit for the best available drugs that work for you to be served.
I strongly recommend that you go ahead and let your doctor know oxycodone isn’t helping.
His primary goal is to relieve your pain and this takes precedence over regulations.
While it is reasonable to be cautious especially in persons whose pathologies might not justify the strength and dose of their pain medication, you do qualify for every most potent pain medication available out there without any reservations.
In all, draw your doctor's attention to the growing burden of pain since switching to oxycodone and suggest he gets you back on morphine that worked great for you.
Unfortunately, these are controlled substances and I cannot prescribe online to circumvent this delay.
Hope I have answered your query.
