I had ACDF surgery on Thursday around noon. It is now Saturday around 8pm. At the hospital I was taking IV morphine and Oral Percocet 5 325. I did not have a headache at the hospital.
Yesterday I came home and I didn't really have a headache either.
Today I have had a headache all day. It seems it hits an hour after I take the percocet and goes away after about hour 3 and then around hour 4.5 the pain starts back up, I take another percocet and it starts again.
Is this normal? Do you think it was just a bad day?
Should I ask my dr for something else? I guess I have to try again tomorrow because it is Sunday anyway.
