HI, I have been on Methadone for chronic back pain for almost a year now and I have been having severe breakthrough pain in my right hip due to osteoarthritis. Would taking Oxycodone benefit me in regards to the hip pain or will it be blocked out by the Methadone? And what dose is an appropriate dose?

I had a partial thyroidectomy last week because of a goiter. I have osteoarthritis in the neck and I believe I have pinched nerves in the back of my neck. I will be going to see an orthopedic doctor next week, but wanted to know if the surgery will agitate the arthritis. Sitting for long periods of time cause my neck to lock up and I can t move it.

Had surgery on right long finger @ dip joint to reduce osteoarthritis pain. Earlier procedure on left index finger was successful (bones fused). This time bones did not fuse so a bone graft was done. Follow-up x-ray showed bone was a casualty of infection. At no time was the infection visible or painful. Third procedure was done to take out pins, debride area, and take samples for culturing. Results showed staph (not mrsa) infection and fungal infection. Immediately went on fuconazole by mouth and cefazolin infusion. Infections are gone but so is the pin that supported tip of finger. Tip of finger is unstable and requires a splint most of the time. On three-week hiatus. What are options aside from amputation?
