I've been reading your discussions now for a couple days and I just wanted to commend all of you for having the strength to stop using narcotics. I'm hoping I could get some advice from some of you. I suffer from severe chronic pain. You can see my profile to see what my issues are (too many to list). My support group is over in the chronic pain group normally and they are a great bunch of people. I've been working so hard towards trying to get my pain levels down with pool therapy, massage, biofeedback, ect ect. Nothing so far had worked so I've relied on oxycodone for the past 4 months and before that was vicodin for about 2 years. I've reached the point were I'd like to try NOT taking my meds to see where I'm at with my pain. So my question is what kind of withdrawals will I be looking at? I've been taking 2 15mg oxycodone a day, and before that was 2 7.5/750 vicodin before bed. I'm just really scared, not of the pain, but what the withdrawals will be like. I don't feel I take alot of meds so will this make a difference on how long the withdrawals will last? Please any advice, suggestions, or your own stories on how you delt with the withdrawals would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! God bless all of you.

My Uncle told me as he always does, "he is going to do what he...
