surgery was a successful. My leg is not hurting at all anymore! However, my pain in my back is worse than I could have ever imagined. I am taking Percocet by mouth, Morphine through a continuous drip and extra bolus drips every 8 mins. I'm also taking valium and Robaxin as muscle relaxants. in addition to my regular meds from home. Oh and antibiotics and zophran for nausea. And I lost quite a bit of blood so I had blood transfusions and my magnesium is crazy low so
I'm getting that in my IV too. I did get up with a lot of help and walked a few steps. Hoping to get the catheter out tomorrow as well as the blood drainage bag cause its gross. Well tat is all I can manage for now.
