Different painkiller: You should discuss the signs of your reaction to hydrocodone with your anesthesiologist, who, based on the other information about your health and input from surgeon will formulate anesthesia plan dor you, that will include the postoperative analgesia. You are not alone and there are suitable alternatives.
