Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
I haven't been on here for sometime but I had my surgery last Tuesday which was PERCUDYN STABILISATION of L4/L5.http://www.i-spineinc.com/int_percudyn.php
Before the surgery I was getting huge amounts of pain and a week before the surgery I was advised to stop taking my anti inflammatories(DICLOFENAC-SODIUM)as it is said to promote excess bleeding after surgery.
Before the surgery I was also taking MST MORPHINE which is slow release 12 hour doses which I was expected to set myself. I was on 160mgs every 12 hours and that went up to 190mgs after the surgery. I have since tried to slowly wean off it by lowering the dose in 10mg drops.
The last two days I've been experiencing worthless nights sleep with continuing stomach cramps but I'm down to 110mgs 12 hourly.
The other prescription drugs I'm taking are CYCLIZINE-50mgs 3 times a day.OMEPRAZOLE 20mgs just in the morning.DICLOFENAC-SODIUM 50mgs-3 times a day.
SENOKOT for obvious reasons but that's another story.
My back feels different and the fact that I was up and walking the morning after surgery was apparently a good sign. I'm obviously unable to take paret in strenuous exercise to take my mind of things which is difficult.
Can anyone offer any advise with weaning off this drug?
