Day 11 still needing pain meds at night


Recommended Posts

I have my two week checkup on Wednesday and just waiting for my Surgeons office to open so I can call and talk to them about my pain management moving forward.

I have had a pretty good recovery apart from during the night. I think on day 7 I slept through the whole night without needing any extra pain meds. Prior to that I was taking some before bed at say 8-9pm and then needing more at around 4am.

I am now finding that since I'm not taking anything during the day or before bed that I am waking up in the middle of the night and needing some. I want to go back to work in a few days but am worried about pain and needing medication.

Can anyone relate or is my pain threshold just super low ??

I am still needing the hard stuff at night :( I hate it, knocks me out hard! And I need to driv for my post op on wed. waiting to hear from doc maybe I can take something that I know doesn't make me drowsy ie nurofen plus now that I am almost two weeks it may be ok?

I'm Day 10 today and I'm still taking 2 Paracetamol and 2 Nurofen before bed each night plus an occasional sleeping tablet. Last night I woke up really sore about 1am and ended up taking some Endone which I hadn't needed for about 5 days.
