wow, "ouch" WTF was that. most retarded post ever?? OP: why don't you call the doc or a family member. also I have heard that if you let your mind stray or try your best not to think of the pain you won't feel it. you could also try just go to sleep. hope this helps
I am sorry op. I know how you feel I broke both of my arms at the same time, two bones in each arm. My right arm was CLEARLY broken, the bones were bent!! The had to straighten it out before putting a cast on. Anyway, I went to the ER and I was waiting for over four hours just to be seen!! A nurse helped me so much she said to relax all the muscles in that part of your body and to elevate it. Every time I started to feel pain I would relax all the muscles again and it barely even hurt!! Good luck!!!!!
I have broken my wrist, cracked my skull, broken my nose two bones on my left foot and recently i'm recovering from a surgery that had to be made, because i broke some important bones on both my feet, because i attempted to push my parcour falling skills a little higher. Those are only my bone injuries, and what helped me all the time, was to focus my attention on something else like playing videogames, reading, talking, watching incredible dumb movies or something like that. Actually when i broke mynwrist i didn't believe it was broken, so it didn't hurt that much. I carried my life normally for two days until my parents took a closer look at my wrist and saw something weird, that's how we found out it was broken. The power of the mind is something powerfull use it
Oh god, put as much ice as you can and call someone to go get you some medical stuff. Seriously FYL.
If it's been nine hours, the doctors are supposed to give more morphine. They put enough morphine to keep your stable and in peace for 1-2 hours. And if OP's at the hospital, the doctors have to do shit for him. It's their fucking job. BTW, most reputable hospitals will have manual morphine buttons that inject you with morphine at intervals when you feel pain. Find a better hospital.
Doctors are always fucking sketchy when it comes to morphine. You have to be on spot with it. They usually don't administer it for broken legs and shit- they'll use a medicine that's not as strong. They usually like to give you strong doses of Tylenol & benedryl first. Trust me, doctors don't care as much as you would like to think.
Oh, I don't know. Perhaps so that insurance or an HSA would cover it rather than the patient having to pay out of pocket? My roommate currently gets a prescription for Naproxen (Aleve). It's a stronger dose, and his company's HSA will pay for it as a prescription, but not OTC. This is the same reason many people continue to get their Claritin and other drugs by prescription, even though it is not legally necessary any longer.
