After my fracture I was on a lot of pain pills for a lot of pain, it has been 2 months now and my surgery is in about 2 weeks for a L5/S1 fusion. I actually felt well enough not to take any pain pills for 2 days and then started feeling really sick. At first I thought I had a bug but now I think it was withdrawal from the pain meds. I have decided to make sure I take a low dose until my surgery since I don't want to go through WD twice but obviously going off these pills is not going to be a pleasant experience. Anyone go through this, any thoughts to share?
