I currently had 3 vertebrae fuced or 3 level cage surgery. 8 hr. Brutal surgery!! Before surgery i listed all medication that i am allergic to wich is only ativan. After surgery i was in the worst pain i could imagine!!! They only gave me 1mg dilaudid every 3 hours. It helped for 1 hr then i was screaming for 2 hrs until i got more. The dr.s was wondering why i was having such a bad time and i said i need more pain med so then they thought i was a alcoholic and going through withdrawals! I do not drink! So it came down to that they were secretly giving me ativan to calm me down. So what everyone says on the 4th night i pulled all the tubes n iv out and went through the floor spraying blood knocking over the tv's pushing the nurses down. I guess alot of cops came and got me under control. I woke up n the morning not remembering anything with bruises down my back n left side. Then i said u people have been giving me ativan foresure, they said yes. I went and got xrays n ct scan and nothing looked broke. The dr.s admitted they were wrong and should of gave me more pain med. Ive been home for 2 wks and doing excellent im walking, dishes and going to stores and easy things. I only have pain in lower back mostly hip bones but not bad. I can sit now my leg, groin, but dont hurt anymore. Im 46 so i had to take the chance of surgery i could hardly do anything. I just needed to go over my meds and make sure i was going to be taken care of way better while i was in hospital!!
