    Im hoping for some information concerning health problems after oxy addiction. I have been off oxy for more than 2 yrs. But still have major gastric issues. Could my past still be causing me problems??

    Thats quite possible we have a ton of opioid recepters in our guts. Since ive quit buprenorphine about 9 months ago mine have never been the same.

    When i brother quit buprenorphine his gallblader clogged up and had to be removed.

    One thing I know for sure as I was on 320mg's Oxycontin at one point in my life is it causes MAJOR Constipation, when I quit I lost over 50 lbs in well I was very backed up and still some days are hard as I get diarrhea more than normal and I assume it's still poison letting go of my intestines, I have no idea how long it last or will last but I believe this may be why our bowels still cause us abnormalities from time to time.
