> I've got a friend who's a brilliant sax player who's also an amputee. They keep chopping extra bits off at the knee. He drinks to help take his mind off the pain because they won't prescribe him any pain control (oh take some paracetamol etc). And when he drinks he can can get a bit nasty. They presumably know he drinks so assume he'll abuse painkillers. Actually recently they prescribed tramadol and he seems much happier and doesn't need drink

Just what I'm talking about.....they refuse to adequately address pain, and turn someone towards self-medication.....then blame him for self-medicating, in the void they've created.

I hope your friend is luckier than most. Tramadol doesn't have a history of prolonged action. It's pretty well known for poop-out.
