I am having surgery tomorrow and I an scared to death! Not of the surgery but because I have been taking suboxone for 2 years now , 8mg twice a day, I didn't realize what a high dose that is until researching this sight. My sub doc told me to not stop taking sub and just tell the surgoen and he would take it from there. I am afriad that I will not get the amount of pain meds I will need and that I will be treated like a drug seeker and I am not good about standing up for myself and friends and family don't really understand. Does anyone have advise?

Hello,

What kind of surgery are you having?

I was buggin when I had mine but it was ok. When you are taking your pain meds after you can try taking like 1mg of sub more or less. I was at 1.5mg and took my weak 5mg Vicodin and I was fine. And the surgery was in my head/ear so no little thing. truthfully I was fine taking Tylenol. I had to be honest and watch my motives about asking for extra pain meds. don't decide before hand that you it be ok. Trust the anetheiologist to get you through it, tell them everything in a calm manner and seriously take less sub only about ~1mg during the time with your pain meds.
