What a horrible experience to go through. I hope you pain is better now.
I remember waking up in excruciating pain after my ORIF. I was hyperventilating and begging the nurse to knock me back out again. But that didnít last long. Once the nurse had the morphine pump setup I was able to give myself a dose every 6 min as necessary. I was able to rest through the night (my surgery was late in the evening) and went home next day in the afternoon. I took my cousinís advice to stay ahead of the pain by taking the the pain meds on a regular schedule for the first few weeks at least.
