I'm on a ton of meds and it's still not touching the pain. They started me on decadron, a steroid, today. I've taken 2 doses so far.
I was in the bathroom and went to pull my pants up, and I felt this God awful pain on the right side of my back. I told my nurse about it, but she seemed to brush it off. She gave me another Dilaudid. Here I am, still in terrible pain. Any time I move the slightest bit, I feel that same horrific pain. It feels like I threw something out when I bent forward ever so slightly. Oh, and the kicker is that I can't stop peeing. I'm hoping I don't have a bladder infection to boot! The nurse brought me a walker because now I can't even get out of bed because of the pain. Isn't it supposed to be getting better by now? Instead it's getting worse. And I've only seen the doctor once since the surgery. The other days I've seen one of his PA's.
I told my hubby about this, and all he's concerned about is me coming home tomorrow, since he only has 2 days left to use at work. Nice to know what really matters to him.
Ugh, gotta go pee for the 3rd time!
