Pleased to hear you experienced such intelligent pain control. I major potential problem with Pethidine, is that doctors who don't understand pain properly, often prescribe it at fixed intervals, with odses too far apart, as Pethidine doesn't last as long as many other analgesics.
Last time round, I discovered a new pain med in drip form, Rayson, which worked well without nasty side-effects ( I get horribly nauseous on anything like Pethidine and other opiates ). This time round they used another interesting new drug, Perfulgin ( ? sp ), which is, essentially, paraetamol but in a special form to give intravenously, and it worked excellently.
Yes, your situation was diferent with the abdominal op, as its much harder then to mobilize oneself without physio --- thats more like my situation after the initial crash, with broken ribs making it difficult to do much.
And yes, let's avoid opening fresh cans of worms. I wonder who first started canning worms ?
