Okay, it will be 3 weeks on Monday since my fusion. I have cut back some on my pain meds and know it is still going to be some time before (and IF) I get off them completely. I hope to start decreasing my dose even more in 2 weeks. So... what I want to know (from those who have had surgery, is this...)
1. What type of surgery did you have?
2. How long did you stay in the hospital after surgery?
3. How much and what type of pain pills did you start on?
4. When did you start decreasing?
5. How much time (since surgery) until you went completely off meds?
6. If you are not off meds, how long has it been since surgery? Explain why you are still need meds?
7. Did you experience any withdrawal getting off meds?
8. Any med advice that you care to share...
