Will a back surgeon ask me to stop taking pain medicine before surgery? If yes, how long before the surgery will I need to stop. I'm currently taking six 5/325 Percocet's per day. I have a L-4 bulging disc that's pushing against a nerve and it causes pain that is just ridiculous. I've tried Physical Therapy, Epidurals, Chiropractors and Accupunture and nothing has reduced the pain. I won't take pain medicine for the rest of my life. If the pain ever stops I will gladly quit taking Narcotic Medicine that most of you know comes with some annoying side effects. Mood swings, sweating, pain increase when the medicine start wearing down. I have other question but since this is my first posting on any website I just want to see if this is helpful.

Hello! How are you?

In many cases, they won't require you to stop a medication such as this, since it doesn't contain a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that can cause blood thinning, which would be a concern with surgery. However, the best thing to do would be to ask the surgeon to be certain.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?
