I have a very sensitive stomach. Have had for several years now and can not tolerate typlenol and ibuprofens...many years ago the ibuprofens started burning me internally and tylenol does nothing but make me very sick to my stomach. First time taking percocet it gave me nausea...but that's not unusual with this type of med.
Wondering if there is anyone who has had to take anti nausea meds before their pain medications. Has anyone gotten sick even on anti nausea meds?
Last year I had two minor out pat. surgeries. With first one doctor gave me a small anti nausea med (amenns??) before I went under general anesth. the anti nausea pill did not make me ill at all. The second minor surgery...I was also given the same anti nausea med about 40 minutes before going out. Within 5 - 10 minutes I was feeling nauseous..even before going in the operating room. I was told I was not under general anesth...just in twilite zone.
No, I haven't had any back surgery yet. I have DDD and sciatica. Very mild disc bulge in L5-S1 and L4-L5. lumbar Pain never came till July 2008. I'm not on any pain meds as of yet. But my pain patience is waring thin. There isn't a day that I don't end up crying. I know I have to face upto reality and taking some kind of pain meds and being sick in doing so. It's that first step that is hardest for me me. I'm a very weak person when it comes to taking meds of any kind. (I'm 65 yrs old and looking like 85)
Well, I've got to go and say my prayers. Thanks for reading my message. God Bless you all, Cleverlee
