I am going in spinal stenosis surgery in 2 weeks.
I have been using opiates for years. the opiates have been prescribed for chronic pain. i get them and use them for legitamate purposes.
the thing is how am i going to do post surgical if i am opiod tolerant? will the docs be able to control my pain given that I take 80 mg oxycontin twice per day for about one year?
will the docs be willing to control my pain?
