... by a nurse it would be a good drug for me. I wasn't sure I wanted to try it, trading Fentyl Patches for sub seemed to be a waste of time. Well since then I have had to have 3 hernia surgeries and was put on oxycodone and was on it about 7 months. It scared me because other drugs hadnt made me feel like that before, so I got into sub program (a) to get off oxycodone and (b) to get relief from fibro since i heard they use it for chronic pain in england. I know this is long so sorry. My question is..I have a 1 in 5 chance of hernia reoccuring around my ileostomy and if this happens and i need surgery or immediate care in er how can they give me pain meds if i am on suboxone?
