Pain control post op

I have been on Suboxone for the past 18 months and I'm at my final month taking only 1/4 tab per day. I voluntarily went to an addiction specialist to stop taking pain meds I was on for well over 6+ yrs. I have had several orthopedic issues which is the reason I was on some pretty heavy pain meds. The ortho issues I have were bilateral hip replacements with my right hip having 6 revisions since 2012 along with TWO back to back staph infections in it. I also broke my lumbar spine in which my third back surgery the neurosurgeon fused me from L2- S1. I am now facing yet another rt hip revision / reconstruction due to this current prosthesis coming loose agsin. My fear is what am I to do about pain control once I'm discharged from the hospital after the next revision that I'm trying to hold off until the end of this Nov, if it makes it that long before it comes totally apart like it did in 2012 causing a lot of damage. When it broke apart in 2012 it tore and shredded my abductor muscle
