i'm still taking some pain meds from my surgery over a year ago; my chemo doctor thinks this is normal given the extent of my surgery. still, i'm slowing getting off of them, and wondering if anyone else is still on pain meds, and what your symptoms are? and what side effects they may be having? my acupuncturist thinks at least some of my aches and pains are a result of the pain meds, and at first i didn't think so, now i'm beginning to. what do others think? i take my meds now every 7 hours, and have halved them, but am now just wondering if some of the feelings i'm having are symptoms of withdrawal, and not from the original surgery! need to google this too.
