    Hi,
    I was prescribed Tramadol last week and founded it to be the only thing that as helped with the pain!
    Would not do without it now, good luck and hope it works for you,

    Hi Yaris,
    I had to use Tramadol post op after a foot fusion. I'd thought I could manage with codeine but was in agony and almost screaming with pain once the nerve block had worn off (about 12 hours post op)
    I sent my husband to the GPs to get me something and they prescribed Tramadol.
    The Tramadol really helped. It took the 'edge' off and also relaxed me-infact it made me quite sleepy.
    Personally I took the smallest dose as the larger dose made me feel too 'trippy' and not in control (but I do tend to react to any medication quite strongly), but the smaller dose was fabulous for those first few days.
    After that I took it at bedtime to help me sleep and stop the pain waking me.
    After 2 weeks I stopped taking it.
    Good luck and heal quickly!
    Trisha
