My surgeon’s staff tells me many people stay on narcotic meds for 6 months or more after surgery like mine. (Straightened scoliosis, fused T12 to S1.) Three week’s after surgery, I am now taking only one or two 10mg Oxy per day. I feel like I will be able to get off of theses soon. Is there a wide range of medication need after surgery? Am I being overly optimistic in thinking I can get off of the Oxy very soon?
