Everyone is different. Some are on meds for weeks. Others for months.How long have you folks needed to use the pain meds?
Sorry but this is just cruel! You can't stop taking pain meds after only 4 days out, let alone 9! I hope you have enough meds to continue taking them for awhile. Ice and elevate as well - it's great pain relief.My physician's discharge instructions said that after day 4 I could begin to discontinue the pain meds as tolerated
