I have an appt with her today and I'll ask her what I should do. I will let you know what I find out as soon as I get back!
My doc still thinks the same thing. She knows I have surgery on thurs so she suggested to continue my suboxone and then the night before the surgery, take subutex. This should allow the pain meds to work the next day. Sorry but I just don't beleive that. So instead I am not using anything today or tomorrow and come Thursday, I HOPE the pain meds I am given will work on me. Not to be high but Iam so scared about being in pain. I will get on my suboxone once I can stop taking the pain meds, I want to stay clean.
Do you think come mid day on Thursday the 14th when I have my surgery, the pain meds will work? Because I sure DO NOT like the symtoms I am having right now. This better be worth it.
