Why would a suboxone Dr do a patient like in details?

I have been on suboxone or subutex since 2009 to present, I was in a auto wreck and had to have surgery on my shoulder, my sub Dr told me that's a very painful surgery and I should quit taking the subs 2 days prior to my surgery on mar 1st of 2018 I followed his orders and started using the pain meds from the surgeon the day of the surgery, I kept thinking that the next day would be better, then I started thinking if the pain was this bad on the Norco 10/325 then I took a sub it would have made me go into withdraw instantly, so I kept telling my surgeon that the pain meds he gave me was not working after 3 weeks he said you might need to switch back to subs so I made a appt and started back on subs, worst month of my life from pain, why would my sub Dr told me to quit for two days?

Because he was an uniformed dr. I had surgery taking suboxone and was able to use the subs as my pain medicine afterwards? Along with Motrin 800mg. Your dr didn't know any better.
