Any docs w/ experience operating on buperenorphine patients?
5 days p/o: revision, implant replacement, capsilectomy, and severe scar tissue issues. Dr. (and myself) are getting frustrated with my lack of pain control. We've tried 5mg oxycodone and 2 mg hydromorphone (which makes me puke), ibuprofen and Tylenol, and yet after 5 days I am still at an 8/10 pain scale. Bupe blocks the receptors making pain control hard. He nor my pain dr have any suggestions. Interested to hear from any other docs who have faced this problem, as bupe is very misunderstood.
