CP Management

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Tricky word, I have come to realize through my struggle. Doctors have given me Percocet, Oxycodone, Morphine and Dilauded. Unfortunately, over the counter pain medicines do not even put a dent in this type of pain. I wish they did! Doctors will tell you funny things about pain medicine. They are addictive, no doubt about that, and they are used incorrectly by many people. There is a difference between being dependent on them and being addicted. However, my regular everyday doctor told me not long ago that taking Percocet even three times a year is too much. He also told me I would die without a pancreas, so I am choosing to ignore him:-) What is the alternative? Deal with pain everyday? My specialists understand this pain and they know it requires strong pain killers. The most knowledgable doctors will tell you that pain must be managed. That is the problem with CP. I should add that to my list of “I knew”. I knew that people with CP often get addicted to pain medications. It is because there is no cure and the only treatment plan is to take pain medicine!
