I am short three toes and the bones behind them due to a oil

Customer Question

I am short three toes and the bones behind them due to a oil field accident. Anyway, I have lost my prescription for oxycontin and oxycondone , the pain program that I was in does not allow any use of the medical marijuana program. I was using it when my stomach would get twisted from the meds. Worked great from time to time. I have a medical card as is needed in this state Montana. Anyway how do I work. The pain get very bad the longer that I'm on it. I can not stop working. The oxy. family has its down falls but its the best that I've found. They allow me to have the best quality of life that I can have with this type of injury. What can I do?

what about seeing podiatry to get some type of orthotic built?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
this is an injury from1998. They build me boots with orthoughtic . The pain is about a four if I sit on my ass but I have not found anyone that will pay wages for that. Working I can make it 2 to 6 hour with meds. Depending on the job of course.

I'm really sorry.

What assistance can I offer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm looking for a doctor that will prescribe my pain killers oxycotin and oxycodone. but I don't want them so large. The doctor that I had gave me 40 mg oxycotin and 15mg oxycodone. I would like to go back to 20 mg oxycotin and 5 mg oxycodone. and be able to eat marijuana cookies the evenings. This will help me to take less pills. Is there any thing that you can do? Or can you get me to someone that could help?

I have tried the Billings Clinic. They have a zero tolerance for marijuana even if it helps me to take less pills. and that's with a medical marijuana prescription .
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
