sounds like you too the meds without going overboard.  I suspect you did not become addicted and therefore would have very mild if any withdrawals.  Good for you!  I hope your shoulder heals well!

Have you ever detoxed off of opiates before?  I ask because the more times you detox, the worse/longer the symptoms.  7 months of daily use is definitely enough to form a physical dependence.  You were on quite a low dose, so if this is your first time detoxing off of the medication you can expect minimal symptoms.  
Congrats on day 3! Keep up the good work
