Depression and/or cognitive affects are a common side effect of opioids. Some people(Like me) can get some really weird side effects from certain types of opioid analgesics-If I take Percocet (oxycodone) I become the world’s biggest @$$hole. It will get better when you stop taking the meds, just don’t do it YET. At this stage of your recovery, it’s better to take the pain meds on their scheduled times to stay ahead of the pain-Trying to get back “on top” of the pain can be really uncomfortable!
Here’s to a speedy recovery and no more surgeries in the near future! Tell @Cutlass92 to keep the pillows fluffed and the remote batteries fresh.
