I feel absolutely Nothing . Im very dissatisatified
with this product and honestly would rather just have Tylenal 3. Even tho the acediphemin Hurts my stomache tramendously and my pain doctoc is aware of this and still prescribed me this crap that is doing nothing formy pain but intencefy it till im in tears
Just being honest.
Just my opinion, but if you were already taking Tramadol prior to surgery, and they left you with an open wound, you should have gotten something a bit stronger than codeine, which is really a quite mild pain reliever. If you are in pain, you need to let your doctor know ASAP!! Doctors are afraid to prescribe stronger pain killers in this present climate, because apparently, we all abuse them, but they are hurting people who are legitimately in pain!! Speak up, and don't be afraid, just don't abuse what was given to you.
As far as your wound splitting open again, I would suggest going to wound care center. I went to one for months after contracting MRSA, as doctors really not specialists in major wound healing. Hope that you have one nearby, as I feel that is your best bet. Best wishes to you!!
Hi Liz, I truly believe your surgeon will best answer this question for you. I don't know where you came up with the names you did, but usually for acute pain, they will use something like percocet to start with after surgery, & hope the surgery helps where you will after a time of healing no longer need pain meds at all. Wishing you the best of luck with your surgery, & pain problems...
I personally have gone thru many different muscle relaxers n found Baclofen 20mg to be the best. Do not take too much of this drug because u won't be able to get up to go to the bathroom. Respect this drug. It is what is given in nursing homes for those whose hands are in distorted positions n need to relax. It also comes in 10mg n I can promise u it will work. Haven't met anyone yet that it has failed to help after suggesting it to them. Hope this helps.
The answer is subjective and these meds behave differently from person to person. Your Doc will recommend what they think will work best for you, and you will know in 2-3 days if it does or does not help. Keep Doc in the loop for the best results. Hope this helps.
