Marinesargeant please, please write a letter to the facility addressed to the floor manager, the vice-president of nursing, and the CEO and tell them of your negative pain experience. We (in pain management) KNOW poorly treated post-operative pain can become chronic post operative pain. There is a cascading effect as well; when your pain is too severe you cannot perform in physical therapy as well as if your pain was low. I hope things have improved. Also I will mention just because these nurses aren’t too knowledgeable about pain and pain management, I hope they are doing a bowel program as well; an ounce of prevention.
