Kat, my thoughts and prayers go to you and your family. What a day yesterday was for you! Congratulations on your daughter's marriage and gentle hugs for you and your Dad.
Listen to PF on the pain med schedule. Take it from someone who knows all to well that it doesn't pay to be "brave" when it comes to trying to deal with pain without meds. You will be off them quicker if you let them help right away.
