Good afternoon all, hope everyone is doing a little better today than yesterday!! I am 4 months post op from a C1/C2 fusion and a bilateral C2 rhizotomy. I am currently going through a pain management group for all meds. I have an appointment coming up and will be asking to be weaned off of my oxyicodone which I take 10 mg. four times a day. I will continue on the gabapentin, muscle relaxer and lexapro for stress but it's time to get off of the narcotics and all of their side effects I have been on them for four months and am very concerned about withdrawl and symptoms but I want to get back to work and would like to be done with all withdrawl symptoms before returning to work. Does anyone have any suggestions to make the withdrawl easier. In your opinion how long does it normally take to go through this. Any help is greatly appreciated.....I want to turn this corner. Thanks all!!
