    That’s terrible. Can you increase your pain medications?

    SiouzQ, this is awful. You have got to get some sleep because lack of sleep makes pain worse. I am so sorry you are going through this.

    I had my boyfriend take me to the ER last; I just couldn't go through another night of pain like that. I got a nice shot of Dilaudid but unbelievingly two hours later when we were finally back home I woke up with the same level of pain down there! I thought Dilaudid was a pretty strong opiate, so that gives you an idea of the pain level going on here.

    I am doing a little better today, just trying to stay on top of the pain - the ER doctor increased the strength of the other pain killers. It's been a LONG two days...

    SiouzQ, so sorry you have to experience that.
    I have a friend who had the same experience.
    On day 4 she woke up with no pain at all.

    Oh, that's encouraging to hear. I'm on Day 2 but it feels like an eternity!

    SiouzQ, so sorry about the pain level. I have a pretty high pain tolerance and when I experienced hemorrhoids I started thinking maybe suicide was an option (being honest). Natural, un-medicated childbirth came no where near to comparing to that level of pain. I hope you see improvement today. I know my husband's brother had the surgery but his family doesn't talk about such things (said in a whisper). Thanks for being honest here, I'm sure it'll help someone.

    I am not doing well this morning, though I had hope for today, which is Day 4. Life is complicated down here in Madrid. I have been staying at my boyfriend's place down the street and he has no land-line but Verizon doesn't work here so I can't use my cell phone. I needed to call the doctor office (again) and find out what the hell I am supposed to do at this point (after having done EVERYTHING I was told to do since last Thursday). Just the 1/8th mile drive to my house (BF is at work in Albuquerque) and getting out of the car and into my place had me screaming and crying in pain - there is NO WAY I'll be able to drive myself the 30 miles to Santa Fe to see the doctor (still waiting for a call back). I am trying to find someone in town to take me.

    I cannot it take much longer...I'll probably end up in the ER again if they can't figure this out.
