“Swallow tablets whole. Do not crush or chew.”

This warning appears on bottles of several pain killers, and for good reason.

With some drugs, if you break, crush or bite the pill, it sends an immediate high dose of medication into your system.

This is a huge concern surrounding the recent FDA approval of Zohydro — a hydrocodone-based, extended-release pain killer with little protection against breakage.

Ashley Killeen calls herself "one of the lucky ones."

It's been about four years since an obstetrician opened her belly to seek the source of her chronic abdominal pain. He discovered her uterus had stuck to her bladder, the result of excessive scar tissue from two cesarean sections.

At 23, the Browns Mills, N.J., mother of two little boys had a hysterectomy. Nearly a year later, the pain returned.

WESTMONT - Jennifer Chiesa rolled her chair close to her patient, who took up a quarter of an armchair, frail and breathing heavily, with small tubes pumping oxygen into her nostrils.
"How've you been feeling?" Chiesa asked with a disarming smile.
"Good days and bad days. I like to forget about the bad," said Helen Volz, 79, a hospice patient since 2009.
Chiesa met Volz for the first time Wednesday as part of her yearlong clinical fellowship in hospice and palliative care through Samaritan Healthcare and Hospice in collaboration with Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine.
