It is over! Surgery was this morning and I think I am doing well. I had two smoothies, a cup of applesauce, and all of my water for the day already! The meds my Dr. gave me (Oxyfast Elixir) and I am scared to take it because of the way the morphine made me feel in the hospital . I asked him do give me Tylenol 3 as well and I have taken that. I took 15 ml. I am curious of the meds you all were prescribed and if they worked. Thank you for your help everyone!!!!! You are all angels
The biggest dosage I took was 4 tsp every 4 hours. I took that for 4 or 5 days and then I started going down on the dosage. BUT I never had jaw pain or swelling of the jaw.....
Im sorry you are having such a rough time! Maybe you should call and ask the doctor about the jaw thing........and the pain.........perhaps he could prescribe you something different/stronger?
I'll be praying for you!
I have something stronger already... he prescribed me Oxyfast Elixir but I don't want to take it because it is so strong. I asked for the T3. The jaw pain is from having my mouth held open I think. My tongue is sore and a bit swollen from talking so much. My T3 says every 6 hours, not 4-6... I wish it was 4-6! Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.
I had my tonsillectomy on July 2nd and still am not out of the woods yet. Started to bleed heavily Saturday night while sleeping, anyway, I must have swallowed over a liter, so that is what woke me up as you can't digest your own blood so easy. Anyway, I wanted to tell you for the pain, all of my meds said 6 hours, but they don't begin to last that long. I took my meds at 3.5 to 4 hour intervals. They all have Tylenol in them with a small amount of hydrocodone. Tylenol can be administered every four hours. Also, depending on the medicine, you can add a extra strength tylenol to your dose. My liquid lortab had 500 mg tylenol and 7.5 mg hydrocodone, so I would add 1/5 a tylenol with it so I was taking 750 mg of extra strength tylenol. I will say a prayer for you, as I hoped people were saying them for me and a quick recovery. I am just hoping I don't hemorrage again, and that my scabs will fall off w/o any more pain. I just want to be normal again.
