    This is something you should ask your doctor about. I know there's some concern about taking blood thinners such as aspirin prior to surgery but I don't know anything about opioids. I do know of someone who took Tramadol the morning of her surgery....

     

    In any case, your surgeon should be informed of all medications you are on prior to surgery. Good luck with the fusion!
