Just wanted to reply after I had done much reading on what I would be in for with my up coming knee surgery.
Well I talked about it with my sub doctor and the hospital.
1) sub doctor said to stop 2 days prior to surgery and she would switch me to another med.
2) hospital said 5 days and I was at the 5 day point right then.

My sub doctor was like totally cool and said what ever the hospital wants, we will do. She had me stop taking 24 mg Suboxone and put me on 30mg MS Contin 2 x / day (60mg per day total)

She said this would help with the withdraws, and also allow for the med's at the hospital to work.
She was 100% correct - I never felt one bit uncomfortable. The med's at the hospital worked post op... Didn't really need leg was totally numb...

24 hrs post surgery I started back on subs and I'm doing better then I would have thought... Didn't have ant post med's for breakthrough pain. (Great surgeon) and great sub doctor.

I was scared to death with all the posts I was reading, but once you trust your dr. You will be ok.

Thanks & have a great 4th weekend

Hey Airborne44,

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on a successful surgery while taking Suboxone. I wish every doctor was like yours who knows about the tolerance problem with Sub. My experience was just the opposite so yours makes me a little more hopeful for the future.

This is the 2nd time I've answered this post. The first one went into our Bermuda Triangle of one week, never to be seen again.

Hope your healing nicely and get lots of rest.


Don't take yourself so damn seriously
