      Why not try lidocaine pain patch directly to your back? Goes on for 12 hours and off 12 hours? Also Xanax and hydrocodone have a synergistic effect on pain and works well when taken together. I hope you aren't driving self with these meds. Nausea maybe a different anti nausra than zofran might work better. However if you light weight as you say would always make sure you have dr approval of course and someone with you when trying anything new. But ask about the topical patches.

      I too am a light weight; hallucinations. bleeding from the stomach. blinding headaches, you name it. I have found that I needed to use other methods of pain relief. After an automobile accident. I had terrible pain and because the accident was the result of road rage and the person wanted to get out of it without jail time I could pretty much choose my treatment. I chose acupuncture and pain management and hypnotism. . So when I had cancer I immediately inquired about alternate. I was delighted to find yes the did have a qualified medical hypnotist and I was also given body awareness tapes. I did not do acupuncture as at the time I was on blood thinners. A cup of Chamomile Tea not only relieves pain but it helps me sleep at night. If my stomach is a little upset or I have acid reflex (after effects of my cancer) I take peppermint for my acid reflux and ginger tea for my upset stomach. Ginger candy and peppermint candy are really good for nausea but you must make sure that they are real ginger and peppermint not artificially flavored.
