Haven't forgotten you all!

Just a quickie to let you know that I haven’t forgotten you all! Apologies if I haven’t responded to private messages. I’m currently in hospital! Long story but have had a bit of a traumatic week, ended up here getting a rather large and complex looking ovarian cyst taken out.

I’ve had a laparotomy as it was in a bit of a tricky position, obviously this is a much more tricky op than the keyhole and am having to take painkillers galore. Been on the morphine most of the night!! I got in touch with Dr Silver re pain relief and he said it was ok in this situation. However, during the night I have had a horrid migraine headache :(( Has anybody else been through surgery and had to take pain relief? What worked best for you?

Hi Kathy, I am sorry to hear about your operation. Its always difficult for us when we have the MAV to cope with as well as all the trauma and drugs of an op.

The last time I was in for an op, I had a blinder of a migraine and they let me take my own medication for it which was 2 x veganin (paracetamol, caffeine and codeine) I pulled the curtains around me and shut everyone out for 2 hours and it was gone.

Get Well soon.


Thank you for getting back to me Christine :slight_smile: I felt really sickly with the migraine (or possibly the morphine!) and the nurse brought in a med that I popped under my tongue. It was a wonder drug! I will have to find out the name of it, the sickness passed within 20 minutes.

Didn’t take any of my usual meds yesterday, will have to check if I’m OK to get back on them today.

Thanks again for the tip x x x x

Kathy, sorry you have had to go through that and hoping things pick up back to where they were for you very soon xx
