It's bad today. REALLY bad. I've been on a regimen of 1 1/2 percocet every four hours for during the day, and two every four hours at night. I don't like taking so much medication, so since I'm also on 12hr oxycontin, valium, etc, I thought perhaps I could go ahead and reduce the nighttime percocet dosaging.
My left side feels like someone went in there with barbed wire, wrapped every bone, and is now tightening the grip. I got up and did a few laps around the house in the hopes the exercise might ease the spasms, but so far, nothing.
I previously asked.my surgeon if it would be ok to take any additional valium if the pain level from the spasming was 7+. I figured 8-9 qualified. I'm really trying SO to take the pain meds in the prescribed dosaging amounts, as I'm well-versed in what it's like to have to wean yourself off the stuff!
I feel nuts right now.
To everyone who's coping with the blizzards, stay safe!
