My options, according to the NP at the pain clinic, are the Fentanyl
Patch, oxycontin, MS Contin, or methadone
. The one I'm most familiar with is the oxycontin. All of them make me nervous.
One of the things that has me fearful is what happens down the road if you need pain control for something more serious and you're already on so much medication; how do they deal with that? I'm sure people run into this often and they must have some way to deal with it.
