... and Dilaudid, neither of which even put a dent in my pain. What medicine would help me instead?
I don't do well with those medications. They make me feel loopy and spaced out, dizzy, and nauseated. I never take more than 1 or 2 after surgery. My experience has been to just take Aleve or Advil or Tylenol. I had a compound open ankle fracture when my car was totaled by a waste management truck. I was told later that I almost lost my foot. My foot bones came apart from my ankle bones. They had to put me back together. But I just stuck it out with the OTC meds that I mentioned, and I came out of all of it intact and just fine.
Did he order both meds at same time?
I think you don't need a new medication just a definate increase in whichever one had the least side effects.
Keep in your head it's a temporary medication for pain relief now but keeping a positive attitude about healing.
I'm trying to point out little mind games to prevent addiction.
Try to start skipping doses when you are having a good day.
You should try to keep the automatic reflex of just taking it because it's there.
Pain meds are to decrease pain levels so you can participate in your rehab most effectively.
