Pain meds after hemmeroidectomy

Wow - so I never thought I would be researching bowel disorders - and actually wish I had done this prior to surgery not after wards. Quite frankly I am in agony here and was naive enough to have scheduled my surgery on a Thursday with the expectation that i would be able to go back to work the following monday. AH HA HA HA. When the Dr said it would be painful.. I thought he was over stating the case

So anyway I am in the throws of post surgery pain. Sweating as I type. Anyway the Dr gave me 8 oxycontanin - which I guess should have been the first sign that this was a deadly serious situation. I have one left and frankly can't imagine next week without something. He also gave me 2 mg Dialudid - I have more of them but its like trying to throw pebbles to fill up the grand canyon.

can I get more pain medicine - its sunday. WHom do I call. Will he think I am a drug addict? And most importantly when do you think I will be able to go back to work. I own a small business and really need to be there.

OUCH!

Re: Pain meds after hemmeroidectomy

So its 5 days after surgery and well it still hurts like "crap" I got more drugs and just having them was comforting. Went all last night without any pain meds and while it was uncomfortable - I made it.

I own a small business and really need to get back to the office. Do you think a week out is reasonable? i think I can handle the regular pain - its the BM pain that terrifies me - it takes me an hour to overcome that as of now.

Re: Pain meds after hemmeroidectomy

I am only a few days ahead of you in recovery and I can tell you that the pain is much more manageable. I make no promises for the BM pain though. I am supposed to go to orientation for a new job next Monday and I am hoping to be able to be comfortable enough to get through it. Maybe someone further along than us will respond and give us hope!
