Comment:
Duramorph was horribly ineffective. I felt the entire C section with 10/10 pain. I was held down as my arms windmilled in pain. I not only felt everything , I remembered everything. 4 years later, I still have acute PTSD from this surgery. I will burst into tears at an image of a spinal injection. during my subsequent pregnancy, th e PTSD was so bad that I had thoughts of killing my toddler ... Show Full Comment

I have had 4 C-sections. The nurse had put a sign above my bed that read Duramorph. Within 8 hrs. I was up walking around, had the awful catheter taken out. I was very thirsty, drinking full pitchers of water quickly. I quickly vomited up the water. That was the only incident which may not even be related to Duramorph. My advice: be careful when you are given this long lasting medication. It work ... Show Full Comment

I was extremely itchy all over for about 36 hours. The itching started almost immediately during my c-section. If you have ever had a csection you know they strap your arms down not allowing me to itch my own face. My husband tried to help but it was so intense that the nurse finally released my arms. Then that evening as the feeling came back in my legs I felt like I had the worse mosquito bites ... Show Full Comment

In 2005, I was a kidney donor and put on a morphine drip following surgery. It worked ok until I had to get up. Any movement caused lots of pain! This year (2011) I had a c-section and was given duramorph and everything was perfect. I did not have any pain in PACU. After returning to my room from PACU my pain was a 1. This was the highest my pain ever was througout my hospitalization. Later that n ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This medication is a God send if you ask me. I had my first c-section in 2006 and I was in the worst pain afterwards that I have EVER experienced in my ENTIRE life. On a pain scale 1-10 I was a 10. It was so unbearable. I was also on a morphine drip.. which did not work at all. With my second pregnancy I expressed my fear of having another c-section due to the pain I was in after my first one ... Show Full Comment
