This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

a medical whine post....

Postby Peter Kropotkin » Wed Apr 20, 2022 4:13 pm

this surgery thing has me, once again, mad as hell about
the fact that opioids like Vicodin and oxcy are limited to
those who suffer constant pain, I have severe back problems,
over the years, ongoing constant pain and yet, to save my life,
can't get anyone to give me something to deal with the pain...
and why?

BECAUSE I MIGHT, possibly in the future become addicted..
what the fuck? I am in severe pain, right now, from my foot
surgery and all they gave me was 12 pills, yep, 12 pills...
so I have to ignore some serious pain, so I can save my 12 fucking
pills for when I am in serious pain..

what the hell is wrong with the medical profession to ignore
real pain, that is happening right now, to prevent possible,
future addiction? that is so wrong... I have been bitching
about this for years because I am in constant pain over
my back and yet to get a doctor to do something is fucking near
impossible because some dumbass in Ohio became addicted...
fuck that.... what about the real pain I am going through right
now.... fucking idiots..... ok, whine over...

Kropotkin
Now if only I could get the other "members of the collection of truth"
to put me on ignore, life would be good..

if your painkiller is paired with acetaminophen, take some ibuprofen alongside it. also, hydrate like mad. most pain is a result of either swelling or dehydration. attack from all angles, and just suffer through it. it won't last forever. i've been carrying narcan for over a decade, and i've seen a lot of really terrible shit happen to a lot of good people as a result of opiate painkillers taking over their lives. it's no joke, and they can slip up on your before you know it. also, eat lots of fiber because that vicodin is going to make your shit into a brick. you don't want to have to deal with that.

switch back and fourth between ice packs and heating pads as well.
