MANY pain meds.. no help..

Aug 01, 2016 11:25 PM

In the hospital over night (at least) I've had the following meds and not one is working (knee surgery)
((Acetaminophen 1000mg, morphine, oxytocin, and some med that starts with a T? Tramadol? Something like that.. ))
I'm in so much pain my bandages are so thick ice can't reach it.. ideas??

Hello TGB ⚘ nice to meet u πŸ€—
Take a deep breath sweetie. When was the surgery done? πŸ€”
Yes tramadol, thats right. If u are really struggling then ask the nurses.πŸ‘­ They can help u.

After my spinal surgeries i had oxycontin 12 hr release with oxynorm for breakthru pain. But that was a while ago now🐴

🐫 i now have tramadol for breakthru pain... but if its not working for u... then tell them... u r in the right place πŸ€—

TGB, did you have knee replacement surgery did they put you on the machine that keeps the area flushed with cold water or just ice packs?

TrangenderBoy, I wish you the best with your recovery. I am sorry that the medication is not working for you. Acetaminophen is not going to touch surgical pain so I'm not really sure why they even gave it to you. If the stronger opioid meds aren't helping, you need to have the nurses speak to the doctor and figure out a different combination of meds to get you through. You mentioned that your bandages are to thick for ice to reach so that's not a viable option right now. Fortunately for you, you're in the right place as Lulabel said. Being in the hospital they can help you better with the meds than they can at home. Sending well wishes and gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers for a full and speedy recovery. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

TGB, is it Tramadol (oral), or Toradol that is given by injection (injx)? Toradol works much better than tramadol, especially post op. But it does burn going into the buttock muscle. Hugs love & prayers they can get your pain reduced asap, and you have a speedy recovery! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

I'm home now. They sent me home while I'm unable to walk. I'm collapsing and I'm bleeding for and open sites. Yet they said the police will be informed if I try and come in again to stay. I'm just all over confused. Is all of this normal?

trangenderBOY, I can't imagine a hospital saying that you couldn't come back to stay when you're having such horrible issues. I am so sorry that you are going through this. Please try to hang in there, rest and make sure the incisions stay clean and dry. Sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} lots of love and prayers that you get to feeling better soon. As Lulabel said, we're all here to support you. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š
