I am still in the hospital after having an open partial nephreectomy. Pain has been intense, but surgerons have been stingy the first three days, which I think let to a difficult post op. I spiked temps 101 first post op night and every night since....some days I was as high as 200.6, I had a Chest CT because fever, wheeze, and unable to get off oxygen. I have pulmonary edmea and three areas of peumonia. I also have some areas of surgical atelectusus...seems surgical induced.
I am trying desperately to get off narcs now...but I can only go about 8 ours, and it is honestly difficult to move.
Does anyone have any suggestions of good non narcartic pain meds? I don't want a lot of NSAID or Tylenol. I dont want to mask the fevers.
Any input? I want iout of here so bad..I am considering eloping! lol
