Just wanted to update everyone here and fist let you know that you can do it. It has been an interesting 3-4 weeks. I was taking 12-15 10/325 daily, soma, fentanyl 1600 mcg loli'd for break though pain..... and so on. I quit CT and didn't look back, 15 days then another surgery, back to the 10/325's but this time didn't take them as prescribed, I took less. Did my 10 days, then just stopped again. No problems, no WD's after 72 hours. I am out Tuesday on the red eye back to the middle east.
The dog did survive, she made a miracle recovery that cost 4k, but oh well. I had to take a break from hear to get my emotions back in order. So off I go, can't tell my wife where I am going, but that is the job. I will try to check in. Be good everyone and thanks for the help!
