Surgery is scheduled for 07/23/12. Trying not to worry - succeeding most of the time. I do have a concern. I am a revovering alcholic with 8 years of continuous sobriety - thanks to God. Although I was never a heavy duty drug user I am afraid of narcotic pain managment because of my addicitive personality. This is a paticular concern as I have a sister who is addicted to opate pain medication. She was introduced to it after back surgery and is now quite seriously addicted.
I need no more drama or skeletons to hide in my closets (no more room...lol) Can anyone here give me an idea how severe the pain was after your surgery? Would you have been able to withstand it without pain meds?
Thanks - I do appreciate any feedback anyone may offer. Good luck and good health to all - be brave!
