I'm having surgery for thyroid cancer and was wondering about pain management right after the surgery. I cannot take morphine because I react to it. I cannot take demerol because I take a MOAI (not sure of spelling) Manerix which is an anti depressant that would give me a bad interaction. I find Tylenol with codeine makes me nauseous.

I remember when I had another surgery in 2001 they gave me a drug intervenously for pain you give to dialysis patients. Does anyone know what it would be or another name of a pain management for a short period.

Thanks in advance my friends!
