"Degenerative Disk Disease", led to 3 operations and morphine & oxycodone useage.
You really do not want to take oxycontin unless you are terminal . I'm currently living a nightmare life after taking oxycontin for chronic pain . i'm now hooked and have become tolerant to successive doses of this drug. I have little or no motivation ,no libido and live a life of depression due to oxy.

Try to find a doctor anywhere in North America ( I live in Canada) is nearly impossible. The government and pharmaceutical companies are hot to trot on giving chronic pain people man made opuates or anti-depressants.They get you hooked your pain is gone. Now they want to make life as miserable as they can "so now you have go on anything but morphine or daillodud (ie). So frustrating. I wanna know what doctors do for their pain? So far every show I have seen on TV. doctors drink like fish. Ie.
