and as for addiction... that is a very misunderstood issue...addiction is when you HAVE to have the drug you "crave" the drug but don't really have pain.... If you have true pain...your body will develop a "dependency" on the drug.because the drug has been in your system..but if you taper off of the oxycontin etc slowly you won't have any problems..it is a proven fact that chronic pain patients with no other substance abuse in the past of psych issues have a less than 1% chance of "addiction"...
Again Addiction and dependence are two totally different issues .... So please don't misunderstand... Write me if you have questions..Jackie L.
