I know it sounds like stupid question....I've been taking 2 percoset every 4 hours, valium every 6 (taking by alarm even at night). Last night I slept thru the alarm, and woke in considerable pain. It's an all metal fusion...titanium plates and screws and tantalum(?) Spacers.
I'm out of percocet anyway, and can't get it on the weekend. I feel a crazy amount of guilt each time I ask for a new perscription, and am wondering should I.be off.them by now...surgery was Feb 25th and was a 5 hr surgery due to bone softness?
Anyway....hurt now in back of neck and shoulders, as well as left arm ( my neck is much straighter than it was).
Funny story, the other night I woke up in my stupor to the alarm on my snazzy Google phone....after taking the appropriate med, I set my phone down thinking it made an odd sound on my night stand...well...I woke up two minutes later thinking sploosh was not the proper sound, and found my awesome phone completely submerged in my glass of water...new one arrived today !!!
So aside from advice not to put the phone in water, how long should I be taking the meds (by the way they help immensely, unless I have to sit with neck unsupported for more than an hour)
