With everything else on your "plate", now this! Oh my! Above posts are excellent advice, hope you get some relief. Re the nausea: I had constant throwing-up for 3 weeks (sorry guys!) when I had my spinal fluid leak after my 1st lammy surgery...it is simply the worst. You said you're on Compazine...they tried that for me but w/ a spinal leak, nothing helps except repairing it (which was surgery #2....) but I did use some ZOFRAN for post-op nausea after that & also after my lastest fusion surgery. It worked really well.
So you might want to consider that product. It used to be $$$, but is now available as a generic -- the drug generic compound is called "ondansetron hlc" and I was RX'd 8MG every 6 hrs for nausea. They also loaded it into my pre-op IV cocktail, post-op meds & thruought my stay in the hosp & after I got home, in order to better tolerate the opioids (daludid, like morphine) I needed for the pain. Zofran can make you sleepy, but that's the only side-effect I had, & it was a "welcome" one. It's also available in 4MG dose as well. I think that's what I hadin my IV, as it was almost a constant "feed" from pre-to-post op.
Good luck getting some help! You have endured too many other burdens to have THIS now, as well! Let us know how you're doing today!
