:< I woke up yesterday and this morning with my left arm in quite a bit of pain and my fingers tingling. I started 15 mg morphine 2 days ago 2x a day. Plus I take the Vicodin 3x a day. They do work but there are those times where it hurts a lot anyway.
I will sure be glad when my acdf is done and I don't have to have this pain anymore. Yeah, it will take quite a bit of time after a 4 level acdf to recover but I believe it will be worth it. One thing I absolutely refuse to do and never have done is overdose. That just causes many many more problems and can be life threatening.
So, I'll work thru the pain. I'm sure thankful for supporting family and for you guys!
