taking Norco for pain from carpal tunnel and trigger finger release procedures on 02/13. called advice nurse last night regarding refill since I am going out of town today (no refills on script). she thinks I should be decreasing the dosage. the pain has gotten worse since 2/15. am I being a wimp re the pain? I know this isn't your usual what are the side effects type question?
note: surgeon does have me wearing a splint 24/7 until the sutures are removed on 2/26 (I saw that a splint was recommended in an answer to a similar question).
I am going to sell a play (nonrefundable expensive ticket) this afternoon with a 3 hour bus ride each way. I want to be able to enjoy it without being distracted by pain. today is not the day to reduce the med.
