Cannot get comfortable

May 12, 2015 6:52 PM

Hi guys,
I made it through today praise The Lord, but I've been trying for the last 30-45 minutes to get comfortable but for the life of me, can't get this post-op pain to settle down. Just took a Percocet a little bit ago. Can't use ice or heat as it is an open wound and really don't feel comfortable doing that without the surgeons okay on it. Can't even lay in my normal position of comfort which is on my left side because that's where the surgical site is? Any ideas/thoughts? Many thanks.
