I'm so sorry to hear what you went through. Do you have a Eurologist? I'm not sure what I can say legally.
I am not recomemding and am only sharing a story.
A Eurologist (bladder & urinary tract doctor) was a God send for my friend. .
I have a friend with intetstycial cystitis. She needed help urinating, she had a lot of pain, and all her other doctors would treat her for just a bladder infection. It took a while before she was referred to her Eurologist who helped her to properly urinate with medication. She had something called IC (Interstycial Cystitis). This Dr even sent her to a physical therapist that specialized in helping her to properly use her core mucles to help her to urinate. I don't know if any of her story is helpful.
Honey, sorry I just had to respond to this... Normally I don't worry about spelling
mistakes but this had me laughing so much....
It's Urologist, no "e" in front. I can only assume a "Eurologist" is an expert in European monetary systems...

OMG- the ruptured ear drum.. holy cow! I actually have a pretty high threshhold for pain.. but one night I woke up with the worst ear pain I'd ever experienced. (and as far as I remember, my first ear infection ever) I could feel pressure building up.. It was excruciating. I almost made my hubby take me to the ER lol.. after about an hour of pure agony.. a huge BAM of pain, then it was over.. My ear drained fluid for two days though. I can honestly say, without a doubt, that was the worst pain I'd ever experienced.
Oh my, have I been there, done that! Yes, that is horrendously painful! Your description takes me right back to that night! Do you think Murphy waits for the wee small hours before inflicting this on people?
OP, I think you have been a victim-let's be charitable-of total ignorance, because the operation you describe requires far more aggressive pain intervention than PO meds. At the least, you should have been on a combination of anti-inflammatories, combined with IV opiates. Preferably a PCA pump. Whoever did your anaesthetic should be inflicted with the same kind of pain you had to endure; perhaps he/she would be more considerate in future, and ensure that his or her patients are on a more effective regime.
