It seems like there is nothing I can take with this present surgery. Side effects of all the meds I've tried are just too much to handle. Tried taking a .5mg of Flexeril today and slept all day and now have this horrible hangover feeling from it. Can't take Soma. Can't take anything without horrible side effects.
In the hospital they had to give me a toddlers dosage of Percocet and still I wanted to stop breathing. Even this Flexeril I took my breathing is extremely labored and my chest feels tight and my jaw is clenched. Has anyone out there had issues with medications like this? My first surgery in 2004 (12 vert fusion) I was on Vicodin, Soma & Neurontin and I was fine. Now I can't take any of that. Ugh.... Frustrated.
12 vertabrae fusion 2004 w/ rods for scoliosis. July 30, 2015 Discectomy & Laminectomy w/ mesh built disc & spacer, fusion one level down, new rods & new screws. Allergic to opioids. No medication except Valium & Tylenol.
