Question about pain after BMX an TE placement

cgifford7 Member Posts: 16

My surgery was on Wed. Thu and most of Fri I had minimal pain and did not use the narcotic pain killer. Fri night the pain really escalated. I called the PA on call and she said it all sounded normal. As long as I don't move it's not too bad, but if I sit up or stand up the pain shoots up to an 8. I've started taking the percocet every 4 hours along with the muscle relaxer, but it is not making much of a dent in the pain. I can't tell exactly where the pain is coming from, it's in the vicinity of one of my incisions so it could be that.

Has anyone had the experience of pain getting much worse a couple of days in?
