Not to be a kill joy, but by your descriptions of your injuries my opinion is that you should mentally prepare yourself for having to haul out there and fly back to Canada.
They both are good. Dilaudid (hydromorhone) is more potent per mg basis than morphine. But after dose equivalent conversion, they are pretty much the same and will do their job if they dose properly. Titrating the patient is a must to achieve optimum benefit and keep adverse effect down.
