I'm two weeks post op from my ALIF of L5/ S1. I've been on 40-80mg of Oxycodone IR per day for about 6 weeks now. I'm starting to feel better ! However, I think I still need some prescription pain meds. I was thinking of asking my surgeon/ PA to step down to Norco. I'm curious if anyone else has done this, and what the dr.'s response was? I was on Norco for three months prior to the Oxycodone. So, I'd basically be asking to go back to what worked prior. Don't know if the dr. Would consider this a form of med seeking?
I just want to attempt to get off of these meds...
Thanks for any advice you are able to provide!
