I feel very fortunate because I had little adverse reaction from the anesthesia, which I have had in the past. My neck and shoulder are much better but there is still numbness in my right hand and forearm. NS says that can take some time. My hip hurts a lot and I am having trouble with constipation. If I reduce my pain meds, I can't move that hip. However, I am so constipated. I can only eat soft foods for now. Any suggestions? Miralx is not working. Generic vegtable laxitive not working either. Suggestions?
