Hot Issue Painkiller Vs. Recovery

1. Painkiller is like a double-edged sword.

The less use, the better it is. It is necessary for rest, but it could interrupt recovery.

2. The general three side effects of painkiller is drowsiness, nausea, and constipation.

When drowsiness, nausea, and constipation occur, it comes to that nothing moves.

3. If it does not moves, recovery takes more time and becomes more difficult.

To move does not mean like moving like a sportsman.

Just keep your daily life continuously.

4. Before taking painkiller, you should eat – whatever..

Painkiller removes inconveniences surely, but it could bring side effect that can interrupt recovery. As it is strong painkiller, it has good effects of cooling down, but side effects get worse. The most important to recover quickly is not to take painkiller but to move as much as possible. The effective method is to take painkiller to obtund inconvenience (pain) at first. If you can move, it would be better, and you become need to less painkiller.

Though any painkiller, it could be nausea by taking it in empty stomach. Many patients told that they have allergies to codein or Demerol; the most allergic responses are nausea. However, nausea is not allergic response. As strong painkiller, nausea is worse and if it is taken in empty stomach, it is worse.

Painkiller is very easy to be habitual. Especially, if you want strong and soporific painkiller, it solves problems but it comes to make another problem. Current surgical technology, it is not necessary for codein or stronger painkiller than it. 90% of patients take codein or painkiller in the level of it about 48~72 hours after surgery, but after then, they take Tylenol etc. About 50% do not take painkiller after 48 hours after surgery. If it would be necessary more than this for the people who are sensitive to pain, but strong soporific painkiller does not necessary. There are numerous patients who are addicted to strong painkillers by taking strong painkillers such as Demerol, Tylenol, bellium etc about seven days, so it needs to pay attention.
