I'm one week post op (Tuesday 2/10) from my micro D and I was really feeling no pain at all by Saturday that I decided I would wean off the Oxycodone. Sunday AM was my last pill - the only pain I felt was lower back (incision) pain, otherwise, my leg was feeling really normal. I was walking about a mile each day. I was feeling optimistic. Then Monday, I started feeling the pain in my hip area....foot and ankle. oh no. I went to bed that night without medication and slept like a baby. Woke up and cried like a baby - pain coming back. So I started taking the oxycodone again. (disappointing in my head)
Heres my worry. Monday (just before pain showed up again) my 8 year old son stuffed up the toilet and I had to unclog it. Husband was not home so I really needed to fix it. I hovered over the toilet with legs bent, (think saddle sitting) and tried to use just my arms to fix the problem. Fixed the issue. went along with my day. Ok, few hours pass and pain shows up.... and that brings you present.
So this is what I need to know from any of you - please - how long did you take your pain medication and when you finally weaned off of it.... were you in pain? Thanks and If I need to clarify anything, don't be afraid to say so. I took a pain pill 2 hours ago and its kicking in. Thanks in advance! :-)
