Gosh i can't believe the nurse was doing that, you mean she was taking your dose of medication herself? is that what you're saying?? if so she shoud lose her liscence. I sure hope you are able to get the pain down to a tolerable level and that they give you the doses regularly, That's absolutely crazy!!
Can you explain what the new problem is that they are thinking you may have? What would the surgery entail?
I hope you can get some better rest tonight hon. I am glad your mom is being a great advocate for you.
