I am having these two surgeries in March. L-3-L-4 and L-4-L5.
I also just got my ID card for cannibis ( tincture) for pain and sleep......as all opiates make me itch all night long.
I cannot seem to take anything for pain including Tramadol.
I usually vomit when I have surgery from morphine, demeral etc. etc..
I tried the cannibus last night....... it did not work... Per usual I woke up with radicular and periferal neuropathy from back down both legs and feet screaming with pain every two hrs....
I have to stand up and walk and then go back and try to rest with ice on my back and heating pad over my side.
I go to bed with ice and heat both every night... there is rarely any let up.
very discouraged cannibus tincture did not work....
I was advised it would NOT work post op....and don't know what to tell the anesthesiologist to give me....
Torodol in the vein helped in the ER when I fell and broke my ribs from siatica... but you can't have that for the duration of my hospital stay and post op.
Also need advice about these two surgeries.. pls help... thank you.
