Having a "Day"

Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
Ooooh my head man... totally forgot the downside of the VA stay and subsequent issues...
Meaning mad withdrawals from teh opioids.  They had me so juiced because of the acute pain, and I managed to stretch the 2 day supply they sent home, but now it's cold turkey time with the monkey on Ye Olde Reporter's Back.

Meh.  BT-DT-GTTS again
Happens every. single. time.
It is what it is... the aches and pains are back in force and I'm just taking it easy.
Ibuprofen and water
Gallons of water.
I'll try and get something up later, but right now I'm about as functional as the ape in the pic above.

  2. Try alternaing the Ibuprofen with Acetaminophen....and go easy on the ETOH for a while. Stay hydrated and mobile...lack of movement can lead to a number on other issues. Opioids screw with the GI track motility so avoiun them when possible is always a good idea.

  3. Had my foot surgery this morning, told the Dr. I didn't want any pain prescription and very light anesthesia too. That bone cracking pain for 2 days after surgery is not for me either. Just Ibuprofen from here on out.

    Several yrs ago a Dr. told me to use this when in severe pain;
    Ibuprofen 600 mg +
    Acetaminophen 500 mg, every 4 hrs .
