I came home saturday after a 4 lvl laminectomy (cervical) on Wed. I take Lorazepam 1 mg tablets (Ativan) 1x every 4 hours as needed, Oxycodone Apap 5/325mg 2x every 4 hours as needed, morphine 15 mg 1 tablet 2x a day, Cholichine (for gout).

I get very drowsy. I do have constipation. I'm taking exlax for that).

I need to go lay down now. Lots of pain. Wanted to share if there are others with similar regimen.
