Opioid misuse is more pronounced in people who have had surgery and been given opioids than in people who have not had surgery. The longer a. Chronic non-cancer pain. Guidelines have suggested that the risk of opioids is likely greater than their benefits when used for most non-cancer chronic conditions including headaches, back pain, and fibromyalgia. Thus they should be used cautiously in chronic non-cancer code: N02A.
