Unfortunately not last night. The pain from the surgery came back with a vengeance and I had no choice but to take the hard meds. And throughout the day today I was in a lot of pain.
This evening, the pain pretty much went away. I still have a sore jaw. Or perhaps a stiff jaw. But no intense stabs of pain. I sure hope that continues tomorrow. My main concern is that even dropping the hard meds, I am still downing four or more 400mg extra strength Advils a day. I have never done that before. And I’d like to get off those pills as well.
It is a nice to have relief from the constant pain. Amazing how much it changes my outlook on life.
