On Tuesday this week I was woken up by 2 paramedics either side of my bed - no I wasn't dreaming it was real !
I take MST but also have Oramorph as a back up but I don't like taking it as it actually keeps me awake. So, I hadn't taken it for a couple of months and knew that when I did take it I would sleep.
I had a syringe of 10mls by my bedside and Tuesday morning at 5am I took it - ALL, which would have been fine 3 months ago. I have taken 10mls plenty of times before and carried on even playing tennis, but my body seems to have had a shock and didn't like the Oramorph one little bit !
My carer came in at 9am and couldn't wake me up.
The moral of the story - keep taking the Oramorph LOL
