I tapered a couple days after that short(48hrs)taper, I went cold turkey for 96hrs. Here's where the tricky part comes in, I was given IV Dilaudid on the 1st day, changed ?overnight & was given IV Fentanyl, then to Percocet & oxycodone. I was give a script for Percocet for which I could not fill because 2 or more pic ID's, which I don't have(long story). I was in a lot of pain aft surgery, I had to be striaght @ lest 3 times. I have a history of Spinal Stenosis & had two discs removed fr my C-Spine(in my neck) approx. 2 yrs ago & ? may have had refereded (sp)? I was toughing it out big time (&still am) I could't (approx) wait at least 8 hrs. My surgery was done at different hosp than the one nearby I my docs, surgeons, they re approx 35-40 yrs away. I don't know what to? I do have a horrific h/a & I was given 2doses of & 1other dose IV for high, a couple before I was d/c'd. HELP!!
I'm not totally clear as to your situation. If you are home now and have no opiate based pain medicine and are not going to restart the Suboxone you are going to be in withdrawals. If you were to restart the Suboxone, you need to be in sufficient withdrawals to prevent precipitated withdrawals and then you'll need to slowly increase your dosage to the appropriate dose.
I would contact the Suboxone doctor and explain the situation. Hopefully, he can guide you as to the best avenue to take.
I also don't know exactly what you are asking nor your current situation. How about reposting here, and this time don't use all those abbreviations. They aren't standard abbrivs, and I know not what most mean.
I also needed Gall Bladder surgery while on Suboxone. But in my case it was emergency surgery because the Gall Bladder ruptured. Now that was pain on 10. Constant screaming. I was supposed to switch off Sub and on to MsContin for 5 days and then the surgery. It never happened. But since I was supposed to do that, the morning the Gall Bladder ruptured I had many MsContin pills. I was only off Sub 8 hours. I got the pain to die down with the MsContin, but I needed about 300 mg. After the surgery I was given IM Morphine shots very often. They kept me out of pain. I was in the hospital 4 days. They then gave me MsContin for long term pain at home, and 2 or 3 IR Morphine tabs for BT pain. I did well with this. When it was time to go back on Sub, I found I was having to many wds with Suboxone. So I used Subutex. I still had to endure minor wds for 11 days. Then I was fine again. Btw, I choose to stay on Subutex, and did wonderfully for 5 years.
So what exactly are you asking?
