John (4 years ago):
I had cancer and had surgery, chemo, and radiation. I was given Oxycontin and Xanax for pain and anxiety. After 4 years I am still taking a large dose of both, and my life is a wreck.I cannot work like before and do nothing of interest anymore. My family is waiting for me in Chicago, but I need to be fully treated from the cancer and from these pills (poisons) I am tired of these meds and want out of it! I rather have the pain than the side effects of the drugs. I live alone in Europe where I have been treated. I do not have the money to go to a center. What can I do to get my life back. I hate these drugs but my body is accustomed to it I take 80MG 4 x a day of oxycontin and 4 pills of .50mg of xanax. Please any suggestion? I would be so thankful
