    Hello forum Family...
    Life on life's terms... I'm a grateful recovering addict today. I love life I love myself today... 20 months ago I was Done with the garbage and I can promise you that if you really want this for yourself it's possible. This has not been a cakewalk to say the least it's been pretty dang hard and some days still is. But perseverance and one day at a time has lead me here. Having support because this addict cannot do this alone, having gained the tools to handle most of what life throws a me now I'm not perfect but just for today if I don't put one in me I'm winning... So with all that said because I'm so grateful today. I have to have a procedure done I'm scared to death and let me tell you my disease my addict brain is not scared of the procedure I'm scared of being in the operating room getting knocked out with a narcotic straight into the vein geeze awful I know it's just a thought but wow it's screaming at me... So scared I'm going to wake up and be off to the races. Talk about life on life's terms...

    Good morning Lvg. Appreciate you my friend. So proud of how far you've come...docks all day

    Sorry to hear you need to go to the hosp...never fun no matter what it is. But you've got this. Hopefully the medication will put you to sleep? So maybe re-frame it as that?

    My friend who is a dentist and used to dole out scrips told me - 800mg of Ibuprofen followed by 2 Tylenol two hours later usually will do the trick for the immediate post procedure pain day or so...

    I know you got this...once you've seen that darkness we went through - soooo not worth it and you know that. Keep updating!

    The darkness that's to kind of a word. It was a war my friend...
    Leo it's not about the pain it's the stinking thinking I allow to occupy my mind. It's crazy how all consuming it can be. Sick addict thinking for sure. I'm sure all will be well I just needed to get that out... Just so hard to put it all out sometimes eh... Glad your still here my friend...

    Sorry to hear the not-so-good news. I'm sure you'll get through it like the trooper/champion you are. If you can CT Methadone at the extremely high dose you did you can do just about ANYTHING in my opinion. In my experience I've never known anyone that has accomplished what you did. Don't know if I've ever told you that, but it's true.

    Let us know when your procedure is going to happen and the outcome. Just know we're all there with you. Having strong drugs/medication to put you to sleep for surgery or a procedure isn't a problem, it's what you do afterwards that matters. Try OTC pain medication first. As Leo mentioned, Tylenol and Motrin together DOES help a great deal to control pain. In the event you absolutely require stronger pain relief in the way of narcotics just use them sparingly (yeah, right as we're addicts), but I know you NEVER want to travel that dark, lonely road ever again. Read Cat's thread where she talks about pain relief after her back surgeries. I find it remarkable, and commendable that she only took one or two doses and then used Aleve I believe it was. I'm absolutely certain you'll use self control and common sense.

    You'll be fine my dear,
    Randy
