Customer Question
My pain Dr. Dropped...

My pain Dr. Dropped me down from a fentanyl patch and oxycodone to 15 mg of morphine 3x a day. I have protrusions in my spinal cord from C1 down to my lumbar, chronic pain, and can't move without medication for the pain

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I am taking the 15 mg morphine whine doesn't help and am not allergic to any

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No other help problems. Just constant pain

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
