Thanks. I never have confused the two issues of pain control vs getting high. The big deal about oxy is the time release and the deaths were caused by crushing it and either snorting it or shooting it. Still, in retrospect, I would have chosen another, lower dose pain reliever, but too late now. If I become stabilized, I have already talked to my pdoc about switching pain meds. Elizabeth wrote in another post about it being available generically--because besides the high dose increases, it is incredibly expensive--I literally spend several hundred a month out of pocket.
