*** Update ***
Many of you asked so, a quick update. Finally got some good sleep last night after I took a benadryl (percs were also making me itch a little, so the doc suggested killing two birds with one stone). Slept so well that I missed two doses and all my ice melted, so I was pretty miserable when I woke up. On the upside, I was allowed to shower this am and take off the ant-clotting stockings, and I just iced for an hour and feel pretty ok right now. Lot of localized pain, but my mood is a lot better.
Now heading to rehab and getting my sutures inspected and bandages changed.
And pain meds just suck. I hate how they make me feel. Why have we not had more success developing non-narcotic pain medication?
