Resisted for a long time but back pain finally became so severe it was my only choice (Oxycodone). Now for the first time in a long time back pain is gone.

I am happy for you . Unrelenting pain can lead to unrelenting depression; I hope that you will have relief.

Nothing like the feeling of going from pain, to pain free!

Just be careful. Its wonderful to be pain free. I have had to be on opioids for extended periods of time. I never upped my dose because I was too afraid to getting addicted. It made the pain manageable but not gone. Without those pills I cannot imagine how horrible it would have been. Luckily I found an alternative for my pain but I fully realize many people do not. I am happy that your doctor prescribed them. They really are a miracle for pain sufferers.

This reminds me of a joke I heard or read years ago when I would get migraines:

Man #1: Why are you hitting yourself in the head with a hammer?

Man #2: Because it feels so good when I stop.

Going from agonizing pain to no pain is one of the best feelings in the world. To the OP: I hope it lasts a good long time!

Just be careful, Jam! Glad you’re pain free, that has to be so exhausting and depressing. Hope the effect last and that some healing can happen.

Yes they are very helpful. They also help take the edge off realities of life a bit.

....if you take them extended periods yes, you could develop
dependency but so what? Your PAIN IS RELIEVED....

I have recently been able to reduce my dose....so I'm happy about that.

Glad you're getting what you need and hopefully not too much of a hassle - but please take care with it.

Eating at our burger place yesterday, we started talking to a man next to us who said he was a counselor at a halfway house for addicts and opioids were the #1 offender. He was there himself and now clean for many years so that's his profession now helping others. People talk about dependency vs addiction and I don't see the difference. A loved one in my life spent 13 months in rehab for addiction. Really terribly messed up.

Personally I could not wait to get off them and in the long run found ibuprofen just as effective if not more and none of the nasty side effects.
