Just packing up and getting ready to go home. Only barrier is getting authorisation for discharge medications. Nurses trying to contact surgeon.
Medications are tricky- trying to balance pain relief with side effects. Pretty sure I am not at risk of addiction anyway - one of the side effects I most dislike is the feeling of detachment which I am told is one of the main attractions of opiates.
I don't like pain much either so need to take something.
