When they wanted me off the Dilaudid they put me on Peroset. I took 2 tabs every 3-4 hours. I am a little concerned though that you are still having such major pain almost a week since your surgery. I went home about day 10 after both my resections (had infection in incision both times) and each time I went home on Percoset and it handled things well. Do the docs know why you are still having such intense pain? Possibly an infection? Hope you get feeling better soon and your resection brings you to a long long remission.
