Anyone have side effects from the drug, Dillaudid? We're 11 wks post tx and trying to get weined off of these drugs, but having a hard time with this drug. Seems as though his stomach hurts along with other body aches and he takes the Dillaudid, then it helps dissolve the pain to almost nothing then the cycle returns quickly with the stomach. My thoughts are that maybe this drug is "causing" the stomach ache and then the drug makes a temporary fix, and then it continues into a vicious cycle of causing and fixing. Anyone with experience with this drug? Soon we will be off of it, so the true test will come. But, it's rather uncomfortable with this cycle. We're pretty sure it's the culprit for the bowel issues he's been having as well.
Next question is does anyone have a lot of leg pain after tx? This seems to be a chronic thing right now.
