Question Fentanyl Withdrawal/Pain Pump-Removal

I've been searching these posts & can't find any answers for my situation.
Long story short, have pain pump & I'm at the ERI (remove or replace) time. Being that I'm sick of being attached to this pump, I've decided to wean off and have it removed. I've gone from 1.9ug/day to .385ug/day. Does ANYBODY OUT THERE KNOW at what point can you shut it down? I'm getting mixed signals from the Dr. I go to. From diluting the fentanyl-to using Seboxone or Clonodine. I've come so far & the withdrawals haven't been intolerable. When I tried talking to Medtronic, they can't give advice.
PLEASE NEED ADVICE!!! So sick of the runaround!
