Had an MRI this afternoon with max sedation and was given a total of 300 mg Fentanyl, 2 mg Versed, and 2 mg Dilaudid within about an hour and a half. Is this a high amount? The Fentanyl and Dilaudid they had me on after my MRI were piggybacked at every 5 minutes. 50 mg Fentanyl then 5 minutes later 1 mg Dilaudid. I stopped them when I started getting really nauseaous and still didn't get any relief from the pain. They kept offering until I started getting sick and they had to keep handing me fresh vomit bags. This was after a nausea patch being placed behind my ear an hour before sedation, Zofran during max sedation and recovery for a total of four times. Twice when I was still out because my body was showing signs of nausea.
I am curious what it takes for you, as a chronic pain patient to get you enough relief that your body stays still for a bit? I don't know if they got the MRI done or not because they kept having to give me pain meds while I was under max sedation because my body wouldn't stay still with the spinal compression/pain.
Thanks in advancde for your replies! I'm just tryin to figure out if my body is as odd as I think with the pain meds. lol
