Re: Toe joint fusion surgery--anyone had?

I was given Tramacet and was directed to take it every 4-6 hours. I took it every four hours the first couple of days. Sometimes I think I took one after three hours once or twice. I had my surgery on a Wednesday. I had a spinal and twilight meds, so had some pain medication that they put in during surgery. Unfortunately, I did not react well to the twilight meds, and did not keep the first oral pain med down. By the time I got home (an hour drive from the hospital) I was ready for more, and a good sleep. Thankfully, that is all a distant memory now, and well worth the trouble!
