Re: How long after bunionectomy should you take pain meds?
Thanks for the advice. When I do the other foot, I'll put a wireless network in here at home! I have to be online all day to do my work (connect to the office network!!)...I just didn't think far enough ahead!
I've been in the medical field for years, and remember how some of the drs and nurses talked about patients calling for pain med refills...so it makes me very hesitant to ask for a refill! However, when I went back for my one week check up, I hadn't taken pain meds for 24 hrs, so I thought I was on the mend...just figured out that my foot was still numb!! Will try the Ultram he gave me tonight...bottom line is, I'm not going to die without the meds...it just makes it easier!! Actually, this whole surgery was no worse than I expected...which is good news for anyone out there contemplating the surgery. Looking forward to walking with no pain...
