I feel proud and glad that I mobilised so fast. Everyone kept telling me I was overdoing things, but I know my body.
Good luck!
It's amazing what your body can do when it needs to. I was gutted they don't give codeine anymore but in hindsight it's a good thing as I'm almost painkiller free now, and it's only paracetamol and ibuprofen anyway
Holy different hospitals and drs polices is crazy
I was on 2 strong pain meds and a pain pump in hospital.
And my baby is 2 weeks old tomm and i still have narcotic pain meds from my doc

They said they don't allow codeine while bfing now 😟 They did give morphine but I'm allergic so I couldn't have it. I was tempted to get someone to sneak me in some over the counter codeine as I took it with my son while bfing and was fine, but I didn't just in case.

I had oramorph during the first few days. It worked so quickly with pain and also chilled me out. To be honest, I had it a few times to deal with my meltdowns and anxieties of my baby nearly dying. When I had intense pain one time (trapped wind I think), they also gave me diclofenac but it did nothing.
Since I was discharged on day 3, I've only used paracetamol and ibuprofen. They were fine.

Post preg. I think is going good and i feel fine! I was walking and driving after the 1st week.
