I am 10 days post-op from L5-S1 laminectomy.
I am feeling well.
)) Most of my pain is at night when I am trying to sleep. It's hard to find a comfortable position as I'm sure you all know. I finished my 6 day Medrol pack four days ago. I also take Vicodin ES before bed.
Since I have been home I have had stomach cramps and diahrrea. (I've spoke with my NS' office and they suggested Immodium & Pepto. I drink lots to keep from getting dehydrated.) I've tried Immodium and Pepto. Nothing helps. I'm sick after every meal.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone else had a similar experience?
A RN friend suggested that maybe I am having an allergic reaction to my staples. Has anyone ever experienced an allergic reaction to their staples?
Thank you everyone for all your suggestions and advice!
