With my CS (nearly 11 years ago) I was on a morphine drip and was encouraged to press the button regularly on the first day and then a few minutes before I was to move on the second day. After that I was given paracetamol to control any pain. When I had my appendix out I was given a base line of oxycontin 10mg and paracetamol as needed.
Del, I thought something like nurofen wouldn't be recommended post-natal, especially post CS, because it can thin the blood?

I can't tell you how relieved I was talking to the anaesthetist pre-op with my 2nd EMCS about how much I didn't want the peth drip to discover he had a completely different approach.
In theory, I do agree that self medicating is not the right thing to do. But you middies have a phenomenal job to do, are run off your feet and sometimes it's just physically impossible to be 3 places at once. The mum in room 3 buzzing for panadol is gonna be low on the list sometimes! Hence, my JIC attitude.

I definitely didn't feel the need to self medicate when I was in hospital. I had c sections for both my births and all the nursing staff were great at responding to any requests I had for needing more pain relief. First time round the anaesthetist hooked me up with a morphine pump (much to all the nurses surprise), then once that was taken away (from vague memory maybe on day 3) I had Panadol and endone alternated.
Second time round, I think I was just given endone and Panadol but by about day 3 I was down to just needing Panadol and by the time I went home I didn't need anything.
