First week post-op

Coming home was such a great feeling. Got myself setup on the couch to make my life bearable for the next 2-3 months. I wouldn’t say my pain level is excruciating but there is a constant throbbing of pain in the area. I started to take 2 percocets in the morning and 2 at night. I did this for the first 4 days and then weaned to 1 in the morning and 1 at night for the next 3 days. After that I stopped taking them. I noticed that when taking 2 before going to bed it gave me some crazy nightmares. I am curious to know if others experienced this as well. When I weaned to 1 it wasn’t too bad. My doc also prescribed me some stool softening pills in case I needed them. I took 1 pill on day 3 and 1 on day 4 and by day 5 my stomach was a complete mess. My advise is to use these cautiously if you were also prescribed them.
