Hi again. I can understand the resistance to too much meds too early. Im on a low dose of dopamine agonist, Ropinerol. Im lucky that i don’t suffer with pain, just stiffness on right side. I guess the thinking is to hold off on strong meds as long as poss as there is a long way ahead of him.
Someone on here will know about pain management.
Think about diet and exercise, if not too painful. Maybe ring the helpline here, they have pd nurses who will have advice on how to reduce pain.
