I had spine surgery 3 days ago to remove promeninant hardware. I was on high doses of medication before surgery, and they increased it after. The first few nights I would wake up light headed and would forget to breathe, even while awake I find myself forgetting to breathe.
Has anyone any advice on this matter?
I called my doctor late last night and he told me to reduce the medication which I have done, but I still worry.
The other item in which I could use advice is with my dis solvable stitches, does anyone know if I could use my heating pad without prematurely dissolving those stitches? I will ask my doc but any advice on this matter would help also.
I will be better enough to explain all of my experiences latter, for now I am weak and require some advice.
Thanks to all the great folks on these boards, reading has surly helped me.
