should I call DR?

I am 5 days post op with bad pain in am and pm before I go to bed not too bad during the day. I don't want my dr. to think I am being a baby or just wanting drugs but I am almost out of my percocets. I know motrin won't touch it as it's alot worse than my cramps used to be and it didn't help them. I tried yesterday to back off the pills for they would last longer not a good idea pain hit earlier in evening then. I only take the 2 before bedtime otherwise one.

Dee, call your doc! You should not be in pain, and they should be managing it for you per your needs.

No worries, call the doc and then let us know how it went.

Peace and Love,

Call your Dr. I had to call my Dr. several times for pain medication. He or she will call you in something. You are soooo not being a baby!!! I hope you get to feeling better soon. CALL PLEASE it does not matter what the question is. that is what they getting paid for. Everyone heals different and ours body's handle pain different. I am still in pain and I am 5weeks post op. I go to the Dr. Friday. Take Care of your self. Rest, Rest!!

glad to see you called. dont just assume the motrin wont work. just because it didnt work for cramps, doesnt mean it wont work for surgical pain. you might get a lot more relief out of it than you expect. hope you feel better really soon.

If they don't prescribe something I guess I'll go back to my arthritis meds. With the weather changes it really acts up anyways. Why my mom moved to AZ weather here just killed her arthritis. Have a good day all.

Dee, I would definitely not be afraid to ask for more pain meds. I had to have mine refilled. FYI, I am 8 wks post op and still in pain! I am seeing my doc again on Thursday to discuss this fact too! Make sure you get plenty of rest.

P.S. Motrin/ibuprofen did squat for my pain. It had to be demerol or nothing to cut through it.

Oh no, Dee. Have you tried the vicodin for the pain yet? Maybe it'll be enough for you.

If not, then call again and tell them. It really is important for them to be able to control your pain.

I'll be thinking of you!
