Hi Angela

I am almost 4 weeks post op, I took pain meds for the first two days, but then I took them at night for at least the first five-six nights, because my PS said I would get better sleep.

i had the exact same problem for about five weeks after my surgery, the only thing you can do now is be patient. i could have probably taken my pain meds, but I decided not to, didn't really like the way they made me feel, eespecially after going back to work. my advice is to take a warm nice bath before bed, it helps a bit!
