I've had my wisdom teeth pulled and some of my female parts taken and I did not take pain pills after those surgeries. I'm gathering howeve, after a full ACL replacement and miniscus clean up, I'm going to need pain pills. Vicodeine is what my doctor told me he was going to subscribe.
I'm even looking into medical marijuana as an alternative. I really don't want to take pain pills. Shit makes me nervous. I don't want to get sick cuz that would suck right after knee surgery, and I don't want to fall in love with them either. I have an addictive personality.
The whole idea just sucks....
When my dr gave me pain killers for temp back condition he told me that
if the pain pills bother your stomach you don't need them anymore and he was right.
When in agony you don't notice the upset stomach.
I have an addictive personality too but that guide line made it easy to know when to stop.
Weed and vicodin = Win
The weed will take the edge off the stomach discomfort.
Not either but both.
