Is your pain still bad?Yes, when I had the back injury, I was prescribed with morphine to calm the extreme pain, but then I had to see several specialists to recover, and they all said exactly the same thing in relation to morphine.
The doctors told me is that morphine is one of the strongest analgesics that exist. And if I consumed it for a long time, I was going to reach the limit of the daily dose, and from then on there was practically no other drug that could be prescribed to calm the pain.... (in my case, this was the main reason to only consume it only for a short period of time....because I knew and they knew that my recovery was going to take a while .. )
They replaced the morphine with a drug that made me feel a little dizzy (every time I took it, I felt like I had drunk 2 bottles of wine).. but that drug was apt for prolonged pain treatments.
I used that drug for about 30/45 days ... and then I got angry with myself, I ended up giving up all drugs, and I dedicated myself to resume my physical training. After 2 years of resuming my physical training, I eventually feel some kind of pain in the back, but it is tolerable.
