Did anyone get sick while they were on the morphine pump after surgery? I've never had morphine before I my second day I was in tremendous pain so I kept pushing that button all day. I think I locked myself out a couple of times. I had a lot of visitors that day and my husband kept pushing me to get up and walk. Anyway, I woke up in the middle of the night and I was so sick to my stomach :& :sick: , my oxygen level went way down, my bp went way down and I had a fever. I was so scared. The nurses said I had too much morphine and they've seen this before. The next day they took the pump away and I had to stay an extra day to make sure I was ok.
The PM doc mentioned morphine or some kind of patches for pain because the vicoprofen hasn't been working as well. I said no to morphine because of my experience in the hospital and no to patches because my skin gets irritated easily.
I was just courious if anyone else had this reaction to morphine.
