I had cervical spine surgery about a month ago, and the pain has dissipated now, but I can't stop taking the pills. I admitted this to my sister yesterday and she has agreed to help me. I have about 20 pills left and she is holding them. She gave me 4 pills for today. Any way I can taper with this number of pills left. I have a follow up appt tomorrow and don't want to ask for more pills. Please help.
