Hi everyone. I am currently on Morphine 15mg 2x a day, Vicodin 5/500 3x a day, lyrica 100 mg 3x a day. I am having cervical spine surgery sometime in the next month to month and a a half.
I saw my DO last week. He is going to cut my meds back a bit. I think he plans on dropping the Vicodin and just having me on morphine 3x a day. He said otherwise I could face problems with breathing post-op as well as surgical staff having troubles controlling my post-op pain because of the levels of meds I have been on pre-op.
Does this sound like a familiar scenario? I have noticed that over about a month and a half on the morphine and Vicodin they don't control my pain as much as they did at first.
Thanks for listening!
