I agree. As someone that has had 10 surgeries since Nov. '06, I can tell you with confidence that you need to call your Doctor and let him/her know what's going on and to request a different pain medication. Trust me, if you keep banging your toe, you are going to injure it to the point you will wind up back in the OR. And you really don't want that! I hope you feel better and heal soon, OP!!
#21 i've had four ingrown toenail ops and never had that advice. i've always been told to clean it daily and soak it in salt water so it doesnt get infected, and not wear enclosed shoes for a few days. mind you, i've also never had one that also requires pain medication. i've always been told to take panadol if the pain is too much.
Oh, I had one a few years back and I had to keep it elevated for about two weeks so all the blood didn't go to my foot and open up the wound. Or so I was told. Don't really remember much pain medication...I think I had some but it wasn't super strong stuff. Probably just ibuprofen or something.
Actually no #35 that's not true at all. You can have a minor allergy to certain medications and it isn't something you need hospitalization for. If what you said about allergies was true everyone who was lactose intolerant would need immediate hospitalization for eating ice cream. Thankfully they just fart a lot and can still enjoy ice cream. Common sense, use it.
Sounds like the kind of situation that would keep you on your toes.
What medication are you taking? it sounds like it is not having the desired effect. Call your doc.
