Hi, new here, first post. My son (big 22 yr old guy) fell Saturday night (it's now Wednesday night), and hit the back of his head. Mild to moderate TBI, as per his symptoms. Ct scan showed skull fracture with bleeding. He did not lose consciousness, but was dazed, and threw up a lot. Discharged from hospital yesterday.
My question is - what can we do about the very severe pain he is in? Prescribed Fioricet, and oxycodone. Nothing helps. He hasn't eaten or slept since the accident pretty much. The pain is all over his head, throbbing with his heartbeat. dr's aren't much help, and he would prefer to stay put of the hospital with all the noise, lights, smells, etc. The pain is not getting better, it's an 8 on a scale 1 - 10. and he's a tough guy.
