I hate to beg guys, but I have posted my questions several times on several different forums, and nobody has replied to me. Did I forget to use deodorant? (LOL).
Seriously, I am at the end of week one of a Dilaudid pain pump trial. I am off my duragesic pump, and taking approximately half of the percocet that I took before, although I have to say, sometimes I wish I could take one more percocet but my dr is discouraging it for during the trial. Can I ask all of you with pumps, did any of you not get the full relief you expected or wanted until the second week? Did you have minor ups and downs from day to day during the trial? While some at the surgery center are doing much worse than I am, others are already pain free with no meds at all. Also, those of you who have your permanent pumps, how much oral meds do you still find you need? I know everyone is an inividual, but I'm just asking for your experiences and for lots of moral support and encouragement. Thank you!
P.s. Moerators, if there is a better place for this to go, please move it for me . I really want some replies. Thank you.
