1. General Comments My wife has been in pain from mulitple sourses; back surgery, knee surgery, shoulder surgery, all by different doctors at different times over the past 30 years. None, have healed properly where she can get full use again. She has endured pain over this time to which NO doctor is willing to treat. We have just recently found a Pain Clinic with doctors that are not afraid to prescribe good pain medication that really works. That medication is OxyContin. She is very careful in its use and would never think of abusing it. What this does is give her some quality of life until we can find a better solution...to which we have not found yet. There are idiots in this world that will abuse anything, but don't let those people over ride the good sense in letting us use this medication for those who need it. If you could walk in our shoes, not for a mile, but for only a moment, you would know what we mean. Sever pain is not funny and doctors should treat it....but few will or are afraid to. This pain HURTS ALL THE TIME!!!!
