I am just now learning how to control the pain management drugs. I have been brainless for nearly a week. Then I realized that half pills are enough for the pain and leave me with a few wits. I have never used anything but alcohol for pain management and this is a bit awkward feeling. The cycle of hurting like hell, take a couple pills start sweating profusely, get really stoned, freeze to death and pass out, just to wake up hurting like hell really sucks.
Got it worked out to hurt a bit, take half a tablet, fell better for a while without the side affects, two hours later take another half a pill, same results. Now I can at least think enough to type. I tried to relate some info to sugrcreek day before yesterday and was surprised to go back and read it to find there was some bit of reason in it. Not much though.
I hear you all on the physio. I am constantly being told take it easy and heal. I tend to be a bit of an over achiever.
Man being laid up is boring as hell.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

Will anything else work to help the pain? Or are you stuck with the heavy duty meds for a while?

Try to find a hot physical therapist. You'll be less likely to complain about the pain in front of her. :lol:

Seriously, sorry you're laid up.

Ohhh yeah the halfey is the way to go! Then take a full one at night just before bed to get through the night. I have had 2 open shoulder surgeries and pain management is the key to a speedy recovery.

Get well soon brother!

I hope you are up and moving soon, Pint. Get well soon. I kind like the "hot therapist" idea.

Get well Pint. FWIW my wife had a partial replacement in mid Dec 2011. She was driving by January.
But hey, this is about you...I wish you the luck my wife had. Work hard on the PT, and don't overdo it outside that for quite awhile, though it will be tempting.

Get well soon. I need a replacement back, so am watching with interest.

If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.
