Please excuse my grammar and spelling. I am horrible on my best day now between pain meds and tiredness makes it ten times worse!
Since my surgery, one week ago,I have been doing well. I was in a lot of pain but they finally got that magaged . I get hickups almost every time I stand up from either laying down or sitting. Which is quite oain full for the incision. Also I have such vivid nighmares/dreams I have to physically sit up mid-dream to wake myself.
The docs gave me 30mg controlled release oxycotin, 20 mg oxycodone(break throught pain), 5mg valium, 50 mg diclofenac (NSAID), & 4 mg Zofran (for nausea). I was wondering if this was from side effects from the meds or just a pos op side effecr. Has anyone had these side effects from any of those meds. Thank you for any insight you have!
Hi cori...i didnt take a lots of meds post surgery...but my dream pattern has totally changed to weired stuff too!!! And i got from one moment to the other sooo tired and was half conscious.u r so early post op...these things do get better.relax and take it easy
Yes, my dreams became a lot stranger and more vivid, especially when i was still on anything with codeine in it....vivid dreams are often a side effect of medications...I also get really bizarre dreams while taking malaria pills...
I know how you feel with the dream sisuation. When I dream I have to wake my self up other wise I wake up to a headache because I was working to hard in my dreams, just to wake up to realize nothing got done. LOL.....Wishing a little wish that you will have a better day tomorrow.
My dreams last night...so incredibly disturbing, I dare not repeat them...oh boy...I have had some amusing ones though....one where I was dressed as princess peach, and a friend was dressed as a night, and we were forced to sleep in large flower pots suspended from a porch....that one was bizarre...as were many others haha.
