Hi I’m Mike. I’ve had 17 back and neck surgeries from 1975 to last year when I broke my neck twice. I developed fibromyalgia after the fifth surgery. The fibromyalgia got worse each surgery.
I found that some medications like hydrocodone, all hydro…s , tramadol and synthetic forms of codeine cause problems like agitation, nervousness and itching. I’ve had chronic pain for many years. The only medication that relieves my pain is morphine. Thanks to all the fear of opioid addiction it’s been difficult to get a prescription.. I only use it when extremely necessary. I use less than the prescribed dosage.
I was a Chemical Dependence counselor and later Executive Director of inpatient and outpatient treatment centers. I taught at one of the major universities on how to manage private nonprofit organizations. So I’m aware of the problems inherent in misuse of drugs.
The problem isn’t with you, it’s with the physicians. You have to communicate every reaction to the medications and anesthesia directly and forcibly to them!!
