    Hi everyone! I have not been on in a LONG time...I am scheduled to have my neck operated on soon, on the advise of my Primary, Ortheapedic Surgeon, and rhume...they are all in agreement. Any way, I admitted to them tht I have been on Tramadol for nearly 2 1/2 years,and worried about withdrawl. My primary is going to have me "wean" off along with using Xanax to help with any anxiety. He recognizes that this too is addicting, but assures me that once the neck pain is gone, I will be okay...well, just wondering...has anyone ever had a discectomy and had to get off a pill that you are so use to taking? Just wondering...please put me in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks
