The Night Was Dark and Full of Terrors

DAY 2:

I am officially off hydrocodon since it was manifesting a plethora of unpleasant symptoms from nausea to drowsiness. Overall, I just didn’t feel right on the hydrocodon. I have switched over to good old ibuprofen and am currently down to 400mg every 4 hours. Most of the pain has subsided, but the surgical area is extremely tender. Even placing it the wrong way on a pillow causes some troublesome discomfort. All in all, I’m in much better shape than yesterday. I went to the washroom for the first time today, and the swelling wasn’t bad at all from having my leg down.

Being stuck in bed just sucks!

At least I have a good view:

    I wad told by my surgeon that Ibuprofin was a big no no. Anti inflamatories interfere with the healing of the tendon. He did not clear me to start using Ibuprofin until I was 4 weeks post op, and then only sparingly. You might want to call your Dr and ask about it.

    There is nothing wrong with my tendon. My surgery was to remove the retrocalcaneal bursitis and bony growth. No tendon involvement. I called him about it and he said it was fine to take ibuprofen as long as there was no tendon violation.
