I'm 3 weeks post op and wondering what I can take over the counter besides tylenol.
I'm in a lot of pain and the surgeon is not helping with pain management. I've made several calls to the surgeons office and they say that my pain is normal for post op pain and I need to deal with it. He gave me a medrol pack and said to call back in a week or two if it's not helping. It's not helping, I have the same horrible nerve pain as I did pre surgery.
I can't handle this pain as it is unbearable at times. I let them know how bad the pain is and I have new numbness and pain in my arm and hand.
Is there hope for me? Can I at least take aleve or asprin? I'm getting very little to no sleep and I'm rotating heat and ice 24 hours a day.
