The surgery is apparently a success, although it sure hurts. I’m on oxycotin every 12 hours with percocet and/or lortabs in between and phenegran to help with nausea. I’m also on a muscle relaxer every 8 hours.
My fears about the IV came true. It was awful. I have 7 bruised “stick” places in my left hand and forearm a couple in my right foot and one in my left foot. They also did a regional block in my neck.
The block was great. I felt wonderful — was ready to come home until it wore off, so I stayed an extra day to get the good injectable drugs at the hospital. It hurts to do anything.
I did get up and get a shower and that felt great.
Sorry I can’t write more, but will update as I feel better.
