    I would say it's more overuse leading to muscle fatigue leading to poor form lifting your chair during a transfer than necessarily that specific movement causing a jacked up shoulder. Hope you heal...

    2 ideas:

    1. If you're on fairly high doses of oral opiates maybe talking to your doctor about a PAMORA drug. Those work at your GI to stop the constipation you get from taking opiates.

    This thread echoes so many of the feelings I have. I'm trying so hard to get through med school, and I feel like it's the only thing that I have to work for, even though it's literally killing me.

    I have been in worse pain since the pump was placed. We've titrated 4 times now. If something doesn't change very soon I want the pump removed.

    I'm getting fed up with my life. Absolutely sick of...

    I feel you Tim. I'm tired as well. I'm tired of the pressure sores, I'm tired of the pain. I'm tired of the constant hospitaliztions, and the surgeries, and the infections, and everything else. I...

    Well I'm hating my life right now. Pump implanted Friday, in extreme pain, already titrated up once, zero nerve pain relief.

    Withdrawal sucks, but you've done it the right way. Good news is you're taking a relatively short acting opioid with a considerably smaller half life than that of other narcotics. Keep in mind once...

    If you're asking what people mean by "pain," you are one of the lucky ones. You have no idea the type of torture many of us go through; literal torture.

    I'm getting a pain pump next week.

    I checked into the hospital because the nerve pain was too much. I had a trail for an intrathecal pain pump and was approved.

    I'm currently getting weaned pretty aggressively off of all my opiate...

    That silver lining, especially if you maintain muscle on your butt, is huge. I have lost so much of my life, and now my body, to pressure sores. All because I'm so bony. I need a special orthoses...

    Not so sure about that. I would agree our metabolisms change and our BMRs decrease due to a more sedentary lifestyle and loss of muscle mass, but I can't find anything that talks about hormonal...

    Not really true. I eat tons of vegetables and unless I'm strictly eating non-starchy ones, getting above 1000 kcals is very easy. Meats, good fats, all of those have to really be limited.

  21. Methadone tolerance, supposedly it doesn't exist but I'm not so sure

    So here we go again. After they removed half my pelvis and rooted around in there amputating my leg and shifting around muscle, my nerve pain went through the roof.

    I was on Buprenorphine,...

    Damn man, that's incredibly low kcals, but I bet that's perfect for a quad like you; crazy how our bodies change post SCI. I had my RMR tested and I was at 1459 kcals. When I track my calories well I...
