Hey guys my ear surgery was fine. They didn't give me any narcotics with the anesthesia, it seemed like they thought it would interfere with my 1.5 sub dose. I told them it wouldn't and I better not wake up in pain :?. When I woke up I was groggy and just wanted to move but couldn't for a few mins but no pain. Takin my sub and the 5/500 hydro the doc gave me. Feel no pain or any kind of high. I have a wierd head bandage too haha.

P.S. esp to hatmaker, there was 2 anestheseoligists - the first one I talked to was like "oh your burprenex" I said no, suboxone he then said " oh that has a short half life right?". I said actually it has a 36 hour half life. He said " oh yeah 20-44 hours"

He is the one that said no narcotics in my anesthesia. I had brought the NIH paper and offered it to him and he said "thank you but I know what it is" I got so fudgin' mad!!!

The staff saw how angry I was getting despite the sedative they had injected in my IV and sent the other anestheseoligist over to talk to me. He explained everything to me so nicely and said he was the one who would be with me through the surgery anyway.

It was all good in the end but what a jerk!! He made me so afraid. My surgeon was awesome crackin jokes with all the nice nurses and my anesthesia guy but there's gotta be at least one arrogant jerk I guess.. You know what, on the way out he said good luck with staying straight in front of an entire recovery room with at least 15 people in it.

Some people just don't have any compassion at all. It's times like those that I hope karma really does exist.

Glad to hear your surgery went well, and your low sub dose along with the hydro is working for you.

OH my! What a fucker! I would have replied back to him in front of those 15 people, "I hope that extra viagra works for you, too, doc!"

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

PS - I'm glad it all went well in the end for you. Take good care of yourself.

I had knee surgery..actually the same one discussed here...torn meniscus and chondral flap, left. I let it go for 9 months after my knee started popping (the chondral flap), and arthritis built up in my knee before I ever got it fixed...so I am destined for constant pain in my knee for life...but I had the surgery when i WAS NOT in active addiction..this surgery was actually during a very clean period of my life (I had touched nothing for 3-4 years prior to the surgery)...

I had a local anesthetic pain pump, which was a catheter directly into my knee, after 2 days that came out...but I went to sleep for mine, I felt it when the anesthesiologist released the sodium pentethol into my IV, then told me to count backward from 10...I made it to 7, 6, blahbkesh........


I suffered a lot with that surgery because I was so scared of the pills that I didn't want to take them. I got home from having the surgery..decided that since I felt so good, I could just walk without my crutches..so I didn't use my crutches right...
Then I went to bed that night, and woke up at 2am crying in my sleep...pain was so bad I woke up from a dead sleep with it...
I hadn't taken ANYTHING...no pain meds, no advil, motrin, nothing at all..and when I woke up it was hurting so bad that I couldn't stand it.

I had my wife go get my pills...and I took 2. 1 when she brought them to me..then another 30 minutes later when I was still throbbing so bad I couldn't sleep...

So knee surgery like this CAN be pretty painful. I actually fell down some cement steps 2 days after my surgery...and caused even more pain...

to this day I still deal with some pretty bad arthritis..but I take my suboxone multiple times per day for pain management...plus I use my suboxone when I have my dental work done. So it's helping me in more than one or two ways.
