That's a really complicated case because you're complicated situation you're passing through because the pain it is really hard for you to accept is that rightIS INTERLOCUTOR SHEBA KURIAN 0:37 your sisterNU NURSE USHA THOMAS 0:39 okay, but nothing to worry about that because now IV morphine is ongoing and you will get the pain like one or two days after the post surgery it is quite normal nothing to worry about that after two days you will come back to your normal life and the pain will resolve by itself. Okay, did you get my point IS INTERLOCUTOR SHEBA KURIAN 1:02 a year sister NU NURSE USHA THOMAS 1:04 Okay, and after the IV morphine infusion doctor may prescribe you with oral tablet with the morphine same morphine tablet and consequently we will reduce the doses and later on with it will be okay with just a paracetamol Is that clear to you?IS INTERLOCUTOR SHEBA KURIAN 1:22 Yes do but I don't think that the there is there any difference between the IV format tablet form of morphineNU NURSE USHA THOMAS 1:33 there is difference that is a good question because being patient you should know how it was the IV morphine it will give you a sooner action than the oral tablets because IV it is directly passing through your veins and it will you will get rid of the pain easily okay, because soon after the surgery you will be in terrible pain I can understand that. So that's why doctor prescribed you with IV intravenous morphine okay. And later on when when you start to doing some a little bit physical activities, there will be some pain but you will be reduced than the first or second day after the surgery. So in this situation, you can take the oral tablet it will take a little bit longer time to act even though it will give the action offer analysis Yeah.IS INTERLOCUTOR SHEBA KURIAN 2:30 Okay sister.NU NURSE USHA THOMAS 2:32 Okay, and is there any other concerns do you haveIS INTERLOCUTOR SHEBA KURIAN 2:36 I don't have any concerns, but I need to have a discussion with the doctor when he come for the round so that I can be clarified no better wayNU NURSE USHA THOMAS 2:47 I should I will tell the doctor to come and see you after his rounds.
