I think I need help
Oct 24, 2003
Hi Everyone;
I'm new to the board, but I have been reading for quite some time (about 4 months).
Here is my story;
About 14 yrs ago, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I had 4-5 surgeries. Was taking percocet, but I really never got addicted. Then about 5 yrs after that I had a bad car accident. (My ex-boyfriend pulled me out of a car) I broke both my hips and my pelvis. I was in the hospital for 2 weeks--demoral, morphine. Was sent home with percocet 5/325. Thats when I knew I was addicted. The doctor wouldn't give me anymore and I flipped. Went through w/d's and that was that. 5 yrs later the cancer came back 5 more surgeries withing 7 mnths. Percocet 5/325 again. About 3 months after my last surgeries I became pregnant with twins. (shocked all my doctors--they told me I couldn't have kids--thank god they were wrong..they are what keeps me going) anyway I had major kidney problems when I was pregnant. I was hospitalized and had 3 surgeries. Again came the morphine, demoral and sent home w/perc 5/325. All my high risk doctors assured my it would not affect my babies. With all the problems and my weak cervics I went into premature labor and delivered by babies at 26 weeks. Now I really started to eat the perc. like candy. My babies were born at 1.5lbs and 1.10lbs. I was scared to death so I took more percocets. I still had very bad pain also because I had a stent in my kidney. I knew I had to stop the pills before my babies came home and I did. They came home 3.5 months later on heart monitors. I went through the w/d's before I took them home. About 1.5 yrs ago I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and 2 herniated discs in my neck. Again I started with the percocet but this time advanced to 10/325 mg. I have only been on them for about 3.5 months but every time I try to stop... I can't. The w/d's are too much to handle, since I have a full time job and am a single mom of twins. I need help
