Proper pain control: Tylenol and meloxican non narcotic and been shown to give equal pain relief to oxycodone with no addiction potential and can be taken on suboxone

Multiple options: The problem with opioids like morphine is that over time it's stops working and actually makes pain worse. Suboxone helps with pain, and in addition you could take Tylenol and/or ibuprofen or aleve. Physical therapy can help as well. You should see a specialist to help determine why you're still having pain. Sometimes, unfortunately, chronic pain can't be eliminated completely.
