Thanks, Judy for the advice.

The lollipops are about $10 each. My doc prescribed 96 so that would have been almost $1000. However, if *I* was paying (not insurance), I might just ask the pain doc to prescribe less quantity. :) Based on your satisfaction with them, I think it's worth a try.

I've tried crushing Oxycontin, and MS Contin with little relief. The morphine pump might be a good idea and since I already have an insulin pump, it would not be a stretch for me to learn how to use it. Although I'm not sure how I would feel wearing 2 pumps!


> I've used the 'lollipops' with EXCELLENT results- but like you my insurance didn't pay and I forget the cost- $200? I think. For acute pain I have crushed up ms contin- but that's a dangerous game (although it sounds like you have a high tolerance). The other option is a morphine pump- have you tried this?- where you actually control the amount of medication in your bloodstream. best of luck- judy
