Re: Pain Pumps?

i am just hoping that they respect my wishes of no morphine. I was given it after gal bladder surgery even though i told them not to. i hallucinate horribly on it. i kept freaking out after my GB and they kept thinking i was in pain and giving me more.

I'm not a fan of morphine either or percacet. One thing they gave me that I liked was diladid. That didn't affect me badly at all and took the pain away immediately.

Re: Pain Pumps?

My experience was like McLila. The nurses kept telling me to use the pump if I was in pain, but I don't like extra meds, so I didn't. At one point they put it in my hand and told me to push it, and I fell asleep holding it.

The first time I tried to get up to use the bathroom, it hurt, and the nurse told me to push the button so I did, but they were giving me dilaudin (sp?) not morphine, and it made me dizzy and nausous (sp?) so I ended up not being able to get up to go, so they brought me a bedpan. That was gross. So I didn't use the pain pump any more after that. They finally took it away and said they would give it to me orally, but I didn't want to use it, so I didn't.

When I had my c-Section 21 years ago, they put morphine in the pump, and I was like Marestail and Danni, I pushed that thing constantly, even though it hadn't been sufficient time for more meds to be administered. I think the act of pushing it made me feel better!

That's what happens to me with codeine! Now I just tell them I'm allergic to codeine when they go through the list of "any allergies?" so they won't give it to me again. One nurse told me one time that having a bad reaction is not an allergy, but I tell them that anyway, so I get that "codeine allergy" bracelet put on me. If you tell them you have a bad reaction to morphine, they should put that on your chart, and maybe even give you one of those bracelets.
