I hope yoiu have a smooth recovery! Your in my prayers! Reading your post I can just about feel your pain! Please don't undermedicate yourself! You know that is not the way to treat pain. Treat yourself as you would treat one of your patients! Would you tell your patients not to take as many as they should? I don't think so! Be good to yourself, keep your husband busy, let him take care of you!
I wish you well!
