I'm scheduled to have my gallbladder removed tomorrow. This has been rescheduled twice due to my having a chronic cough after an endoscopy...which I still have...along with allergies to almost every pain medication. They think they have it figured out but in the meantime while I'm trying to stay as positive as possible I have had numerous health care workers express to me the pain afterwards being the worst hurdle and if I'm coughing that could be an issue. Really? I'm not sure how to take that. And I'm scared. I do have high sensitivity to pain meds. Fetanyl, a "normal" dosage they said (75) literally almost stopped my breathing. Anything I should consider or do I just trust my surgeon and hope for the best? Is the pain that horrible? I had 5 children without any drugs but the last one was 16 years ago! Not sure I'm that tough now.
