My Surgeon called, he told me I am over medicated
and to stop taking the Morphine (Ms-Contin), and to drop down to only 3 of the 5mg of Oxycodone, and to leave the Flexeril at 3 times a day.
I woke up this morning and could not move again, my Nurse had to lift me off the bed once again, I did notice something= When I am sleeping I feel like I am falling off a cliff and my body goes into spasms
. I told the Surgeon all this and again he said I am over Medicated. And the Morphine is causing Halucinations and to stop it.
Tomorrow the Nurses are to teach me more excersizes, I can shower alone now and wash the upper back and lower feet with the back brush. I actually was able to squirm into a position and shave my legs
I don't do this unless someone else is in the house with me and I also bought the 2 ways radios at wal-mart, so I am never alone.
I begin the new meds in the morning since I already took the 12 hour Morphine today.
So I will take my nap today
and walk around my backyard without the walker. And get fresh air. My Sister-in-Law and her husband are here for a visit for a few days and are helping me tremendously
They won't let me fall
So I wanted to let you know that it is the meds doing all this and in the morning I should be doing 100% better and not need the walker at all
