Comment:
I had a consult with the anesthesiologist one month before the birth of my first child. I discussed with him that morphine was completely ineffective for me in a previous surgery. At the time of the birth when, under great duress, it was determined that I needed a section, the anesthesiologist and my mother ( a labor/delivery nurse) both convinced me that duramorph would work because it used a dif ...

Comment:

Anytime I've had surgery, I' ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
As a new medication available for C-sections (it was not widely used when I had my first child in 2006), no one informed me that Duramorph is simply ineffective in about 10% of patients - I learned this later on. Durapmorph is supposed to provide about 24 hours of pain relief after a C-section. For me, it only lasted baout an hour. After that, I felt like my insides were being apart. I could b ...
