Re: Post ACDF Complications
Some people are very sensitive to various forms of narcotics.....nausea, vomiting, headaches (including migraines) and sudden drop in blood pressure (sudden weakness, etc.) Many are dehydrated after surgery and that compounds the problem. Finding the right pain pill with the right chemical structure can be difficult.
I'm really sorry to hear you are one of the very sensitive people.....I am too. Dilaudid gives me migraines, a regular percocet drops my BY and I have to hit the floor and put my feet up, concentrate on breathing slowly. Others make me puke. But 1/2 of pain pill works fine most of the time.
Do you know what they gave you in the hospital post-op? Did it work then? If okay, then call your doc to find out what he ordered. In the meantime, work on hydration!!
