How long on pain killers?


Recommended Posts

I had my BA two weeks ago, then reopened on one side to remove a hematoma two weeks ago. While im off the heavy pain relief, I'm still taking strong ibuprofen and panadeine as I'm still in a fair bit of pain, a LOT of what feels like burning in my sternum and aching on one side (non hematoma side).

How long were you taking meds for and does this sound normal? I have three kids so the last week or so I've been back to looking after them.

It's perfectly normal. Take them as long as you need to. Keep in mind that if you're running around and lifting your kiddies you will get quite tender as it's still early days post op.
