... tablets of the 8mg, and I'm also prescribed 80mg of Oxycontin, and I have been on this high of a dose since November 2005, and its almost November 2009 so your looking at 4 years evry single day. I have never been without so what do you think the doctors will do with me after surgery(spine fusion with the rods, plates, skrews, and bolts put in, and bone graft from my hips)if they have me on this ridiculous amount of medicine before surgery, and if the surgery is a sucess(50% chance it will work 50% it wont)how long will they continue to give me the pain meds cause I'm sure I would have some major withdraws coming off such a large amountof narcotics so can someone give me some info on what you would do in my case
