The Dr didn't believe me and gave me 2 tylenol suppositories for my fever in the ER because I had had motrin 2 hours before(which does work)-later when my fever whent up instead of down-he said i guess you're right. For some reason twighlight drugs don't work on me either-I remember every second of my colonoscopy and will never have another! I remember hearing something on a radio dr show that it is common for someone who is immune to Tylenol to be immune to twighlight drugs also because of the way they work. I can't find anything about it anymore -Have you heard of this? I'm so scared my Dr won't believe me and try to use a twighlight drug for my wrist surgery.
you are not the only one out there who twilight drugs don't work on. I have talked to lots of people who have woke up and yelled and the dr knocks them out again. Did you tell them when you woke up during the procedure? AS far as the wrist surgery if your surgeon won't knock you out properly find one that will. I have a great orthopedic surgeon who has done both my wrists and many many other surgeries on me and he knows it takes a butt load of drugs to knock me out and never had a problem. He's the greatest. They are out there you just have to look. Wish you luck. Oh and by the way do you realize when they first started colonoscopies you would have to get on a table with your ass in the air and all you would get is a numbing shot in your butt and back then it was hard metal they stuck up there while your wide awake. The only reason i know this is because of my dad when he first stated getting them. How horrible. No way i would of done that. Hope i helped you out a little and if nothing else gave you a good laugh from reading some of this Leron
doglover1, welcome to the sight! You have the same problem I do! I had the same experience with my colonoscopy. Thought I was going to die when they went around the curve in my left colon! Have the same problem with dentist too. You are extra sensitive. Do you have firbromyalgia by chance? This will make you this way. Talk to the anestesiologist before your surgery, They always come in & talk to you.l I had wrist & left thumb rebuilt in April & was told they would do a nerve block only, & I told the anesteliologist I had to be put out too! So she did, but make sure they do both. They just put me out with no nerve block, & I sat straight up immediately after the surgery screaming in pain! Fortunately the surgery was done at the place my pain doctor is & he came in & yelled at me for not getting the nerve block, I told him I thought I did!I thought I had both! But he had them give me the nerve block stat, & said they usually last 24 to 48 hours, but me being so senitive I could come back & get another one tomorrow if it had worn off. It lasted about 7 to 8 hours, so next morning I went straight back & got another one, but only lasted 6 hours. Oh, girl,, Im' guessing you are a girl, ask for strong pain meds at home too, I mean really strong ones like 10/325 hyrocodone. I take 15mg of oxycodone, but have been on pain meds for years! I so understand your problem. You will be in pain for quite awhile depending on what they are doing. I will friend you & if you friend me back we can also talk about this privately. Good luck & once again welcome to the site...
