Comment: ‘It is everyone’s responsibility to be Opioids Aware’


Similarly, staff have to make sure they discharge patients with enough pain relief. A relative of mine had a c section, major abdominal surgery and the dr attempted to send her home with paracetamol and brufen a day later. This is completely inadequate. She requested more pain relief and was sent home with dihydacodiene added to her script. But she then had to call her gp for tramadol on top of that because she was in severe pain. I understand they don't want people on lots of opiates, but to relieve temporary pain so a woman can care for her baby is surely not too much to ask!
