Hello, I have thyroid cancer that had spread to the lymph nodes on the right side of my neck. A week ago I had surgery to remove the lymph nodes (surgery went well and I was sent home). Now I am on percocet for the pain. I have been able to reduce my doses and think I will be completely off in a couple of days. My doctor said after the surgery, I could start trying to conceive. I was so excited because I have been wanting a baby for about 6 years and my doctors had told me to hold off for a while. Anyway, as a result of my excitement, I had unprotected sex a few times with my husband within the last three days. He wanted to wait, but I really wanted to begin. I told him it would help with the pain I was having and it did. But, I had forgotten all about taking percocet until today. I looked at previous forums, but would like info for myself. I really think it will be a while before I conceive, but the thought scared me a bit on the chance that I could be pregnant. I have been on birth control since my son of 7 years. I was using the IUD, not hormonal one (My doctor removed that a month ago and I was using condoms up till the surgery). Now I am not on any type of birth control. I was given vicodin and percocet and told to choose one. I haven't taken vicodin since last weekend. Please let me know if I should completely stop taking percocet or vicodin. I am very concerned, please help. Thank you.
