Morphine is a dangerous drug and is well known for making people hallucinate. This is what happened to me the first night I had my operation.
I remember waking up in the middle of the night dying of thirst and crying out to the nurse for some water. Unfortunately, she couldn’t give it to me because apparently, you’re not supposed to eat or drink anything for a certain amount of hours after an operation.
