I'm sorry you're hurting Whenever I've had surgery I've found it helps to take the pain meds exactly on schedule, otherwise it seems to hit harder and the meds take too long to catch up. So if the minimum interval for the meds you have on hand is 4-6 hours, make sure to take one every 4 hours for at least the next 24 hours so you can stay on top of the pain...

I hope the nurse is helpful, I hope no second surgery is necessary (but I know you'll face it with courage if it is - you want to get everything...), and above all else, I hope you feel much better soon...
