Customer Question

Hi, I am just starting to research some things. I have my first appointment with my surgeon on 1-11-16. Gastric Sleeve surgery. It never even dawned on my that there might be a problem because of the private pay methadone treatment I have been in for 10 months. I started the methadone treatment after being over prescribed and over taking opiate pain medication for the past 5 years. I am doing fantastic and I hate that methadone has such a bad reputation because it is working beautifully. I just turned 40 and am a better mentally stable and happy place that I was before I even got addicted to Oxycodone and Fentynal patch. Any advice?
