Woke up in recovery rm in severe pain , pain so horrible



Recommended Posts

Couldn’t enjoy waking up in recovery room knowing operation was complete. So sad. So horrific

Anyone have severe pain post op. I woke up in operating room. Crying with severe pain. Wondered why I had this surgery. Wondered what happened. Thought I was dying. I said to person next to my bed I need pain meds. She said your going to be getting pain meds. Or we gave you pain meds. It was horrible. I wasn’t being helped. I would rather be knocked out. I was so looking forward to coming to in the operating room knowing I survived my operation and it was over. But this was horrific. Why did I have to be in such pain.

This continued . . . Transferred to room with pain. Had to constantly request pain meds. I shouldn’t have had to deal with so much pain.

Congratulations on waking up.

Pain is certainly no fun.

Keep making a lot of noise about your pain. Suffering quietly is over rated, and it doesn't get you pain meds.

You are your advocate. Keep advocating.

It's amazingly horrible that in this day and age the pain of some groups of people is stupidly minimized. Don't let them do it to you.

Hang in as best as you can, knowing you have folks rooting for you.

You're here, and alive! I am sorry you woke in so much pain, though...

I am hoping that the pain meds are doing their job now, and you're feeling better today!

I was in horrible pain when I woke up too. At the very beginning the gas pain was overriding my surgical pain. That quickly changed. They kept wanting me to take pills for the pain which I knew wouldn't kick in for a while. I'm also already on a low-dose narcotic for back pain so I knew my tolerance to pain medicine was built up. I finally made sure my nurse knew that & begged for my next few doses of pain medication be delivered through my IV. She was able to do that & it helped so much. If you haven't asked for something stronger or told them the amount of pain you are in, please do. I hope things get better for you!

So sorry about the pain. My pain was pretty bad too those first several days. It got much better after I got out of that darn hospital !!!

I agree with the others keep on them until they give you something that helps. ITS RIDICULOUS we have to beg for help with pain !
