First off, my apologies for the delayed response. While no one had chimed in on your post yet, I do know that a number of our community members have had to taper or stop their use of restricted pain medications. Sometimes, this is done willingly and other times, it is borne of necessity as the laws change in an attempt to stem the opioid abuse crisis. I hope they see this post and can share their thoughts and experiences with you.
I think you are tapering your use is a very smart fashion, and wisely, under the guidance of a physician.
I hope your progress continues and you are happy with your progress thus far. AND I hope your pain is minimal as you adjust to life without morphine.
I had to giggle at your comment about your leg hair -- I think it would drive me batty to actually feel my leg hair growing! May your future shaving endeavors go smoothly, with no nicks or cuts.
Thank you for reaching out!
