Good morning Chrissy1!
Welcome to our CP forum!
It sounds like you may have had a successful surgery, and your pain may have been reduced because of it!....That's Great!
As far as getting off of any pain med, it is always best to visit with your Dr and get a plan put in place. It may be, that he will put you on other med's to help with this, and then of course there are a few things you can do yourself to ease some of the withdrawal symptoms as well. A good Dr will slowly reduce your med's and should make the process a little easier for you.
