The worst thing has happened. Please give me advice.

Dear Peeps…

I am posting this under ‘crisis’ because this a legit one for sure. It’s also on my thread.

I have never once asked for help but I have no one to talk to that understands or could possibly give me any help, advice or guidance. Except for you good people. I wish I could call you all. Seriously.

I was just released from the hospital. I have a large kidney stone that has become lodged in my ureter. This is one of the worst possible things that could happen during a taper.

The pain is a 10, period. I just spent the last 10 hours on IV Dilaudid. The ER doctor took a while to understand my buprenorphine situation but finally he did and gave me very large doses. Then sent me home with a bunch of Oxycodone.

I have to have it surgically removed. No other options are possible. After they remove it they place a stent in the ureter for 1-2 weeks, which can be very uncomfortable.

I am very sad. A bit scared but most of all, lost. I need advice.

Today, for the first time in over 5 years, I took a shit ton of narcotic opiates. And I just took 40 mg of Oxycodone. So for one day I am, and have been, on the sauce.

My pain has stabilized and I MAY not need to take any more opiates.

I am on my last day of .4 mg of Suboxone. And I was actually psyched to move onto .37 mg. I don’t know what to do. DO I TAKE TODAYS DOSE? I am thinking of skipping today sub dose, seeing if I can make it without any more pain meds and just take my sub again tomorrow night. This would be the best possible outcome.

My number one goal is to not let this destroy and derail over a year and a half of tapering. My taper has become everything to me. I even gave up my beloved daily Excedrin, been eating the perfect diet and tapered way down on Xanax.

Being on Suboxone and having trauma is one thing, being way into what has become (finally) a committed taper is another.

Dudes and Dudettes. I am truly unset and confused. Please all tell me what you think. If you need more info just ask.

Thanks you all.
