I had 12 level ,17 hr spinal fusion surgery on Dec 1 to correct degenerative condition. Was on 20mg Oxy twice a day for 2 years pre surgery, was in hospital for 3 weeks on giant amounts of morphine and am currently at home doing re hab and part time work on 30mg morn, 20mg midday,30mg night plus the odd instant release oxy when needed(I'm on other non arcs also like lyrica, enedep etc). All is going well with recovery.
So my pain doc wants next month to start to wean me off and wants me to take methadone to do this, I was stunned when he told me as I guess it has a stigma attached to it but he and my pharmacist say it is the best way to do this. So just wondering if anyone can fill me in on experience and opinions on this RE success, strength , effectiveness etc.
Any feedback would be great cheers
