morphine is so natural to our brains, i believe it is easier to stop than other opiates. just make sure you wean down steadily.  

glad your surgery went well.  hope this keeps you out of pain

Yay Butch!!!

What a great post.  I am stoked for you my friend.  Six days and counting until I go under the knife.  I've been on the opiates since late April though and my pain is STILL out of control.  I'm hoping that my surgery is a successful as yours because I honestly can't wait to be ME again.  The 5 days a week yoga not putting any pills in my body other than vitamins ME.

Take good care of yourself and stay close...

Butch, LULU, I pray your surgery a great success Lulu. I know the next few days are going to drag by. Butch don't sweat the pain meds, take them when you need them. As you know once it gets out of control its hard to get easy again. I had back surgery a month ago and I took mine. I didn't have to take as many as the dr. thought. I didn't en finish the bottle. Asprin got to where it worked just as well. God Bless you both
