Post Surgery

Underwent surgery last Tuesday and other that pretty strong pain the first day, most of the post op pain has been minimal. Had a plate and 8 screws installed, and the nerve block really did the trick immediately after surgery in minimizing pain.

Taking oxycodone every 6-8 hours and now almost a week out, taking about 1/2 the dosage and extending the time between to 10-12 hours. Really good meds, but I do not want to get used to them. Overall, much better than expected thus far!
