I am going in for my 3rd surgery in December . I had my shoulder replaced 4 years ago and then fell on the ice and tore my last rotator cuff and cracked the bone holding my implant . I cannot use my right arm . My surgeon can make it better .
My problem is my pain Dr. has me on Suboxone and seems convinced Suboxone will suffice through the surgery and post op.The replacement surgery nearly killed me as the Hospital said sub was non formularey and gave me 7.5 Percs . the Sub blocked them and for 3 weeks I was in agony. I have used Sub for pain control and have never had an addiction problem .
Suggestions ? I take 4-12 mgs a day .
