HI.

I'm 20 years old with lots of disc problems, DDD and stenosis..have had surgery in the past and will find out next tuesday if I will have another. I'm currently on sustained release morphine for the pain
1-4 15 mg tabs/day. I've been on this regimen for a couple months since switching off of dilaudid. For awhile I took the max dose every day because I was so used to be in pain..and really could not handle any more of it..now I usually only take 1 tab/day (although, there are still the really bad days). My question is..I want to have the option of not taking any..if I can handle the pain..but I don't know when withdrawal starts to set in. My pills are 12 hour pills..I think the longest I've gone without one has been 18 hours..or maybe 24? I can't exactly remember. Does anyone know anything about this??

thanks!
Dani
