:H Hi Everyone!
I guess I'm learning how to manage the timing on taking my pain meds. I woke up this morning and my left and right arms were in a lot of pain. I'm supposed to take my Morphine (extended release) at 9 am and 9 pm each day. I also take Vicodin 3x a day.
I woke up at 9 and it was at least another hour before I got to taking any meds due to being busy waking up, shower, breakfast, dealing with family, lol. Well, I learned how important it is to take these meds at the correct times or as close as possible in order to effectively manage pain.
I have cervical spine surgery coming up soon.
Thanks for listening!
