Life is better, but I see a bump coming...

I have been off of the Ultram since I last posted here. That's what? A month or so. Thank God and all of you for that. Thank you so much!

The other day I had to go to the specialist to get a scope put down my throat so they could examine my GI tracts. Of course, I was given Demoral before AND after the procedure. You all know that Demoral (am i spelling it right?) is an opiate. I got a little buzz on it before they put me to sleep, and it reminded me of the hydrocodone and Ultram days... It's about to get worse...because they have found a hernia, and since I'm so young and the hernia is severe....I have to have....surgery........ I go tomorrow at 4PM to set up an exact surgery date. Or heck, I might have the surgery tomorrow evening, you never know! Anyway, after the surgery, they will be giving me a prescription for an opiate pain killer. Probably 10mg Hydrocodone. ........ UH-OH!!!!!!!

What am I going to do? Will me taking the pills I will recieve make me go back to old habits?

Hi Herbal, what I would do is be 100% honest with your Dr and tell him/her that you have had problems in the past with opiates and ask if there is anything else they could give you for the pain. You have worked way too hard to get where you are today, don't go back!! If anything I know you will have to have something after surgery, however don't go home with any narcotics. I know you are in a bad situation right now and I would not want to be there, however, you may be surprised at how well non-narcotics work. It's just a thought.

Good luck,
Sammi
