I've been reading that abruptly stopping narcotic pain meds can cause Codeine; Oxycodone (including brand name OxyContin); Morphine.
Yes you are in a bad situation for an abrupt withdrawal.
I have a opiate contract with the VA going on 6 years. To discontinue your pain meds without a gradual withdrawl is really malpractice unless the VA can prove you are selling your meds or not taking them. What kinds of meds do you get? Because I live in Florida I use the VA due to many pain clinics that are not legitimate. I would use a private doctor in the future if I were you. The opiate contract you sign is like a bear trap. I think you can beat this by explaining this mistake the VA made.
