Discussions that mention demerol

I had total rectal resection by conventional surgery and an epidermal. The epidermal paralyzed my right thigh muscle. After the epidermal was removed my mobility all came back within about 6 hours. I was on a Demerol pump after that and pain was never a problem. The worst part was the urinary catheter, hated that thing.

I did not have a tube when I awoke, just oxygen. However I agree that it is better to have that done while you are out cold as I have had that done.
