I became addicted to vicodine after a bad accident.I have been on suboxone for 4yrs.I need complete knee surgery but my Physician wants me off the suboxone.My Phsycitrist says wait 24 hrs go to surgery and you should be ok and have no problem with the pain meds you have to use. I dont want to do that.If I come out of surgery in horrible pain I want to be able to use the meds the surgeon gives me.So,I have broke down from 2mg to just crumbs.Last dose was 1/4 of a 2mg tab.that was 2 days ago and I am withdrawing.How long must I hang,I am 59yrs old and I hope it will be soon.Thank you♥
