Re: Addiction and surgery.
Hi, I know what you mean. If I could do it over, I wouldn't have told any doctors. However...you need to be extremely careful if you are prescribed narcotic pain meds. In this case you could climb into addiction hell. I took Percocet 10/325 for 12 years. Also, A friend of mine gave his pain meds to his wife to dole out to him. But then the doctor prescribed stronger pain meds and he didn't tell her. Next thing he was buying them off the street. His wife left, he lost his job. He is a recovering alcoholic and now a recovering addict. All of this stemmed from a back injury. So take good care.
