Is the use of dilaudid pain medication bad to use before my hip replacement? I take 2mg/ 1-2/Day. Should I stop taking it now? My Hip Replacement is not scheduled but should be by June depending on schedule of surgeon.
It's because you build up a tolerance for the medication meaning it may be more difficult to control your pain post op.One surgeon said it would be good if I stop taking it before the surgery to have a better outcome.
