I finally after 3 months caved in and went to my primary for pain relief. Ortho's here do not RX meds anymore. ONly post op for a few months.
Ortho did give me ultram which helped some of the edge.
I was just given tylenol 3,10 mg valium and soma those 2 I have been on before.
I finally am comfy but so ZONED OUT. I hate that feeling especially now that the kids are home.
Bed is not my place to be all day unless its on a tropical island with a pretty drink LOL 8)
The only issue I am finding w/ the tylenol is I get the jitters, mabye because of the caffine in them??? I know there is not alot. But I think when you drink coffee it doubles it.
I find I am smoking more to with them.
I did not want anything stronger due to the fact of possible surgery again. And if that happens I was adequate pain control when that happens. Hope some can understand that.
Meds are not my choice due to one kidney. but hey ya have to do what ya have to do sometimes.
No driving thats for sure!!!
I am worried the 29th as I have to drive 45 minutes to the ortho's and the appt is not till 12:50. I usually awake at 7 and thats a long time with nothing.
Guess I am ranting a bit. But this site is my life line to the outside world.
Has anyone had the jitters with this med????? I think its going to have to be changed as I have high anxiety. The valium helps with it. But I have been off them for 3 months so its bascially a new med all over again to my system.
Thanks for any input or just support.
