After 6 surgeries in a 10 year period taking a lot of painkillers for 17 years I want out. Been on Fentanyl, Morfin u name it. Been 2 years on Suboxon went from 16 mg to 2 on my own. And stopped on the 21th this month. I got hydrocodon 10 mg to help with withdrawals 1 4 times a day. Didn’t help I have to take 2 so I don’t go crazy. Can anybody tell me how long it will be before feeling better. Have diarrhea I’m cold sweating like crazy. Everything hearts. My clothes get dripping Wet in seconds and it’s a Marathon to go to the bathroom. Any tips is very welcome. I just don’t wanna loose the fight. Have no cravings

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Don't give up the fight - you achieved a lot in just a few years of being a young adult.

Drug addiction due to painkiller use post-surgery is common.

Anon, you may need inpatient rehab - you are suffering from severe withdrawals which can be very serious. Weaning is difficult and needs to be under a doctor's supervision, Present yourself to the ER straight away or call your doctor today. Please do not do this alone.
Please stay in touch with us.

Thank u for answering. Sometimes it’s just nice to talk to people that know what u r going through.
Still hanging in here and doing a little better.
This is hard but I’m not giving up yet. Will stay in touch and maybe one day I can tell my story and help others.
The only thing I know is stay far away from Subone. That was the fix to get off opioids with no withdrawals. Couldn’t be further from the Truth. It’s worse than anything else.
Just wish somebody could tell me how long this will take. Is it 3 weeks a month???? Nobody can tell me. Anita

Hello Anita

There is no time line. It can take weeks or months to become addiction free.
Are you in some kind of addiction program?
