Have you had surgeries or procedures done? Did you have any bad experiences with them?
I had a hysterectomy. Before the surgery I told my doctor that I can't take narcotics because they make me violently ill. So after the surgery when I first came to they give me a narcotic for pain. Five minutes later I'm heaving which isn't a good thing when you're being held together by some sutures and glue lol. Then they had to give me something else to take away the nausea. Before I konked out again I told them that I didn't want anymore narcotics for pain and the nurses give me a confused look. So we struggled and went back and forth on this for a full 24 hours before I finally told my doctor that I was going to get up and walk out of the hospital before I'd take anymore. Finally they decide that I might take 800mg motrin. Jeez, couldn't this have been done before all the heaving and pain was gone through?
I've had procedures done before but this is what I would call my first actual "big" surgery. Not impressed, glad it's over! Hopefully, if in the future I have to have another surgery, whatever doctor will actually *listen* to me when I tell them "no narcotics!".
