I had a c-section on the 2nd and was released on the 6th... I was given percocet to take home for the pain and it was what they were giving me in the hospital.
For the first few days I took it like they had been giving it to me and as prescribed, 2 every 4-6 hours with ibprofin. After about 3 days I took it only twice a day and yesterday and tonight am only taking it right before bed because when I tried not taking it at night I slept horribly because every time I moved it would hurt.
I'm about out of what the on-call doctor prescribed me and am not sure if it is okay to ask for a bit more? Or how I'd go about doing that?? So I thought I'd ask others with more experience.
I'm taking as little of it as I can as I hate narcotics and am able to manage the pain well except at night. :/
