 Re: Peripheral nerve damage pain
Kate B    7:09am Aug 4 2019

I had a bi-malleolar fracture which required surgery and I have a cousin who had a very similar injury a few days before me. I took his advice and stayed ahead of the pain by taking meds on a regular schedule. It’s only for a short period of time. The first two or three weeks are the worst. I remember the ‘bee stings’ waking me up as the nerves recovered. After I got over the worst of it I asked my surgeon to switch me from oxycodone to Tylenol 3. I still have left over pills in my drawer of both...I should probably take them back to the pahrmacy for disposal...they are over 3 yrs old now.

Hope your healing goes well.
