Be sure to something with protein in it about 20 minutes before you take your pain meds. It helps to coat your tummy, thus helping to keep the nausea down.I took an oxycodon at breakfast today for pain and I’ve been nauseous all day.
You never told me how often!2. pain medications have you been prescribed, how much are you taking (in mg please) and how often?
Paracetamol x6 500mg
Naproxen x2 500mg
Ondansetron x3 4mg
Oxycodon x2 10mg
Gabapentin x3 300mg
Omeprasole x1 20mg
Got that but for how long?6. Elevating on stack of cushions but not very often
For one week out? That's amazing!1. pain levels 6
Ah - moderate swelling adds 4 points to the pain score so that bumps it up to 10!3. Swelling is moderate
I think you should be taking the oxycodone 4 times a day as prescribed but if it's not working for you, I suggest you ask your GP for Tramadol instead which is much MUCH more effectiveOxycodone 10mg twice a day
Paracetamol 500mg 4 times per day
Gabapentin 300mg twice a day
Naproxen 500mg twice a day
Omeprasole 20mg once a day
Ondansetron 4mg three times a day
Wow! Pretty good. However, don't get depressed if it goes backwards!4. Flexion 90 Extension 0

You need to elevate for at least 40-60mins and more than 4 times a day.6. Elevating on stack of cushions for 5 minutes but not very often
I understand.7. Activity level I’m up and down a lot. Find it hard to sit still.
I suggest you stop the exercises, such as they are, as you don't need them. And cancel the PT as well because you don't need that either. You're doing excellently well anyway.8.
Not much as lifting my leg really hurts on medial side.
Foot slides x20 x6 per day
