I will have a minor surgery planned for the next week. It’s nothing to worry about really and I can’t say I’m very nervous, but there’s one thing I’m doubtful about. The thing is I’m taking Tramadol for back pain and my doctor told me that I shouldn’t take any before I go to surgery. Should I really stop taking it? I’m not really keen on doing that because I’m worried about my pain getting worse. What would you say guys? When should I stop taking it and how dangerous is it to take painkillers like Tramadol before surgery? Thanks.
