My husband is currently recovering from a fairly extensive abdominal surgery (correcting the last botched one) and is in a great deal of pain. The only pain relief that the surgeon will prescribe is 1000mg Paracetamol ev
en though he has been asked several times for something stronger.
Does anyone know if th
ere's a good medical basis for refusing stronger pain relief? No organs were involved this time (although we've we been told nothing about the op). We, regrettably, strongly suspect that the surgeon is not a fan of the Anglais given his manner and hope this is not some form of vindictiveness.
Is there anything we can do to improve my husband's comfort?
