Finally were told the leg pain and overall body aches after tx are being caused by the narcatic withdrawls? He has come off his fentayl patches and Dillaudid in the last month and started feeling more pain. He was then given Vicodin to help. It helps take away the pain and as soon as it wears off, the pain is back in high gear...almost unbearable. Called the tx hospital and they said to stop the Vicodin and take tylenol (500) and/or Aleve and that the next 72 hours will be really rough. They also mentioned to increase exercise. This is all apparently from the narcatics blocking the nerves and now trying to come off is becoming a challenge.
Anyone with similiar challenge? Could use some tips or just simply let us know if you experienced this. Hoping we get through this fairly quick. Just got our NED the other day....and looking foward to feeling better with it.
