I went to the Doctor’s yesterday to discuss the pain that I’m still in when walking.
She took a good look at the scar to make sure there was no infection.
It’s looking good and healing well but it is very tender and making wearing shoes almost impossible.
Standing still isn’t an issue but the actual mechanism for walking quickly becomes very painful.
I can’t walk around for more than half an hour without being in more pain than I was before my surgery.
Anyway, the Dr has given me 2 new painkillers to replace the Paracetamol and Ibuprofen.
I am now on Zapain (Codeine Phosphate and Paracetamol) and Naproxen.
I took the first dose of both about an hour ago and I am now flying!!
I am feeling very warm and fuzzy and a bit swirly in the head.
They are going to take some getting used to.
Have they helped with the pain?
I’ll let you know after I’ve gone for a walk.
