I can understand your wanting off the meds, but there is a way to
do it and a way not to
do it. You should take care of first things first. Try to get
the pain under control, get the surgery, and hopefully you will heal. Then, you can start the weaning process. Your desires are commendable. I just don't like to see needless suffering. Pain meds, WHEN USED PROPERLY, are a good thing.
