Discussions that mention potassium

Back Problems board

I had terrible cramps after surgery and it was terrible. Make sure that you are drinking plenty of water and eating plenty of potassium (oranges and banannas). You can also try heat to help. When these things did not work, we changed my muscle relaxer to valium and that helped me out alot.

If you are taking oxycotin, several people on the board have mentioned night sweats.

Take care and if you continue to have problems, you might want to chat with your surgeon.
