Well all today I am posting the beginning of day #4 without a narcotic. The first day was rough....so rough that I called the doctor, but by the time he called back, that really terrible feeling of "narcotic hunger" had passed. I am still getting symptoms from time to time and I am in pain, but, it is too early to tell if my pain is directly related to the withdrawal from the meds or if I am truly in pain. I will keep all of you posted. If you can make it past the first 24 hours - you can make it.
