I tried the pump at first in recovery they ended up giving me ketamine, versed, dilauded, morphine, toradol until they finally gave me the epidural. They offered it at first and I said no then when my Dr arrived I asked his opinion and he also felt that I have a high tolerance for pain and most likely would be fine on just the PCA pump. I would definitly get the epidural again if need be.
I got home on Friday and I am still in some pain and still passing diarrhea which he said will get better. I am taking a stool softener as well due to the pain meds so that they wont plug me up.
