Discussions that mention valium

Spinal Cord Disorders board

Hi Ander
I also was worried about pain post op - unlike you I was able to take morphine by pain pump but then had to go onto oral drugs early when a nurse inadvertently pulled out my i.v! Many people who have a problem with morphine do great with dilaudid. I found that percocet-5 helped me when I got home, initially I needed two at a time and then I was gradually able to decrease my dose by 4 weeks to nothing. I also was given valium to help with muscle spasms and used that for a couple of weeks. The first couple of weeks are tough but bearable and, so far, well worth it.
