Hello I 66, waiting for a hip replacement and taking big doses of codiene for pain relief. The problem is that codiene makes me extremely constipated which brings me even more pain. I am having to take lots of laxitives to counteract the side effects from the codiene. I have weaned myself off it but now am in full pain mode, Ive tried taking co-codomal which does work,and doesent seem to have too many side effects, having to make it it up in liquid for to drink means I have to get up to the loo a lot during the night and you will probably appreciate how hard it is to get comfortable again. I would be so grateful if anyone has experienced this and managed to resolve it. I am seeing the surgeons on the 19th so hopefully wont have to wait too long for the surgery.
