Glad you're back and happy you're feeling good.. I wish you a speedy recovery
Thank you. Taking it slow for now.
My stomach is pinching more than the morphine led me to believe. I have some of the good stuff at the house though (with due warning from the pharmacist)
I miss my daytime nurses.
The night shift not as much. :)

You mean there is something stronger than morphine?

LOL, no, it is not stronger.
I had not considered how much the occasional shot from the pump made life more comfortable.
5/325 Norco. It's ok, I just have to plan my trips down the hallway around it. :)

Morphine makes me throw up... 100%. I can't take it. I don't do well on any of those opioids... which I suppose isn't a bad thing.

its like when I was on Oxycodone, stand up, pass out. it was knocking my blood pressure down to 90/30
I took Oxycodone once, after a surgery. As a guy who almost grew up in the sixties, and embraced the counter culture lifestyles of the seventies, I can tell you one thing with certainty, that crap is bad, really bad, poison even.

I was taken off it by the ER doc the day after my knee surgery

Thank goodness for that.

We should get to hang certain Doctors for some of the crap they prescribe.
When you have a "for profit" healthcare system, where GoFundMe accounts are an integral part of the system, and doctors receive kickbacks from drug manufacturers, I mean... is anyone surprised when doctors hand out drug samples like candy on Halloween?

I was on oxycodone once. Took the prescribed dose, got hit by a massive wave of itchies all over, and then -- scared the beejeezus out of me. Won't take it again.

Now, morphine... morphine was cool stuff. I watched my blood back up and make pretty swirly patterns in the IV bag until a flight medic spotted it and caught the attention of the nurse. :wacky:

Def. don't want to be throwing up. My holes and stitches would not agree.

I think I started itching on the morphine and hit the pump far less than in the beginning. Not sure what it was, never did materialize itself in anything (thank goodness)

When I was in the hospital for covid they kept giving me oxy. I finally asked them why I was taken that I wasnt in pain. The nurse shrugged her shoulders and said the doctor ordered it. I told them I wasnt taking it anymore and took myself off it. I thought that was odd they were giving it to me in the first place.

I went to the ER a while back with chest discomfort (turned out to be acid reflux). They did an EKG, it was normal, took my blood work it was normal, they then came in to give me nitro and keep me overnight and schedule a stress test in the morning. I asked them why since everything was normal. I was told it was procedure for men over 50 with chest problems. I did not take the nitro and signed myself out
