Hi all, I just had a left side laminectomy diskectomy 2 days ago. Just had some questions. Due to a storm and subsequent 9 hour delay I went over 30 hours with no food or water though the saline iv helped thirst. I did well post opp but when I got to my room they gave me a muscle relaxer and two 10 MG hydrocodone. I was able to get up and all seemed well then my blood pressure dropped to 74 over 48. I drank some broth and coffee and stayed away from the muscle relaxer. It gradually came up to normal but two more rounds of hydrocodone made me sick. Upon coming home I was bloated and had a hard time urinating. That's subsiding but I now feel pain down my left buttock and calf. Is this normal?
