They took my morphine pump from me....now I'm on oral pain meds. 10/300 hydrocodone and muscle relaxers. Long night...woke up with wicked headache....not much sleep because of them coming in to walk me and all the beeping coming from the IV pumps. In more pain today. PT and OT worked with me twice. Got a shower. Drinking lots of water so they are having to watch my catheter bag so it doesn't overflow. Still getting great care. Talked to my Dr and he told me it was a very good thing to have done. The disc was definitely needing to come out. Says he thinks it will make a world of difference for me. I'm a bit concerned because the inside of my left leg from my knee down doesn't have the sensation and feeling that the outside does. Has anyone experienced that before? The Dr tells me the feeling will come back. I sure hope so. Scheduled to go home Sunday.
P.s. my fiance typed this for me...no way I got do it on my own.
