I'm just after a bit of advice and have found forums really useful in the past. My other half had an accident at the back end of last year and as a result has a compressed / bulging disc in his neck / cervical spine. The pain, over time has become considerably worse, to the point where he has been given Oromorph today.
Obviously this has made him very very drowsy and I now dont feel that I can leave him alone at the moment at all. He is on many other painkillers too - all the usual ones.
We are waiting to see a consultant, and have an appointment in a few weeks.
My question is this though, as the Oromorph has made him so drowsy - is this just an initial effect, until it gets into his system properly, and how long will this last? Up until yesterday he was able to do simple stuff (make a cup of tea, walk the dog) but now he can do nothing, and I would like to think that in a couple of days he will be able to do those things again.
Any advice or experience would be much appreciated, I have no experience of Oromorph so this is relativley new to me, although we've had this scenario years back with - for example Tramadol when he was first ever prescribed that.
Thanks very much
