Drug filled night. Oxycontin, percocet and who knows what else.
Woke up about 5AM with a pain level of 6+.I was told I would be getting pain medicine "right away". 2 1/2 hours later and now my pain level is about 12+. Nurse comes in and says it took so long because they had an emergency in another room. Diane arrived and saw how much pain I was in and complained to the head nurse. They tried a number of combinations of drugs but nothing was doing the job. I was starting to lose my mind, that God that Diane was there for me. They finally called my surgeon and he told them to give me dilaudid. The dilaudid was given via IV and worked within 10 minutes. What a great drug.
