Hi all! I had my THR on July 16th 2018. I am hoping to do all this "recovering" right, but am feeling very fuzzy and unsure. I was doing decently until yesterday, post op day 5. Every dose of my pain med continued making my dizziness and intense nausea worse and worse. That's why it's taken me this long to get back onto the computer. I began taking half-doses of the narcotic on post op day 4. I developed a low fever of 99.4 yesterday as well. This morning, I have alot of pain obviously, but i am scared to take any pain meds. Is it better to just not move and go without the meds or take the meds and force myself to endure the nausea and dizziness? I also fear any pain med will cause the same response as i am very drug intolerant. Help, please!! Thanks guys!
