Well, I have surgery tomorrow. I finally heard from my sub dr and my surgeon. I took 4 mg sub yesterday, 2 today and tomorrow I have surgery. Will the pain meds help me at all!? So damn scared. My sub dr who is really good seems to think I won't have an issue with pain relief...but what I read i scared!

A lot of us have been through it and you're going to be fine! Even if there is discomfort it will only be temporary. Try to check base with as many of the medical staff as possible tomorrow. Did you print out the articles from Dr. J. to show to the Dr., nurses, anesthesiologist? That's what I did! I'm sure you'll make it through!

Thanks for the plug, Amy! The bottom line is that you need more pain medicine to compete with the buprenorphine. I use oxycodone, at doses 2 or 3 times higher than 'normal', but some docs use dilaudid, fentanyl, or other agonists. You may have to work to get your point across-- but anyone who has surgery deserves pain relief, no matter their history. Good luck!
