I had my op on Thursday afternoon 30th September and was discharged on Friday Evening 31st September.
I was having morphine while at the hospital, but that came to a full stop after I left.
I normally take Co-Codamol for Fibromyalgia and that is what the hospital gave me, for the pain, to take with me. On Saturday the pain was so bad I called 111 who said to come to the Badger Clinic. I saw a triage nurse and then a doctor who prescribed morphine (100ml) to get me over the "three day hump". ???
Today I am very nearly to the end of that prescription & have had to call a Doctor at my practice for more.
My pain has not eased since Saturday. Sleeping is the only respite I have from it. Lying down is uncomfortable…. Sitting is not much better. I have bought numerous shaped cushions to help too.
I'm taking laxatives that aren't as yet working.
Has anyone some advice or had a similar experience?
