Take care and a speedy recovery to you. On the bright side, your hair cut is like mine...no maintenance!

Ask for hydrocodone instead.

I rarely use the stuff but I have a big stash as we live in a remote area and I had a bout of back problems a few years ago. It doesn't make the pain go away so much as letting you just not care...

Actually, the WebBots included meds in their "shortages" predictions. That makes this a "sign of the times" indeed!

Glad to know that there were no cats involved in this "incident"!

Get well quickly, my friend!!!
The best luck is what you make yourself!

Ha! At least they're benign, right?

Per the Vicoden shortage, it's probably cuz all my lovely fellow Detroit citizens are hogging them. I swear, this city needs an enema, followed by Narcan in the city water supply.

If you're having that much trouble, ask the doc for Norco instead. Same active ingredient, just less acetominophen in them. 325mg per pill vs 500mg per pill. However, do realize that the daily max on tylenol is 4000mg, so if you decide to pop a few extra tylenol, do the math to add them in with whichever drug you choose!

(Plus, a Norco addict is much rarer than a vicoden addict!)

Blast, you know how we all expected the crocodile man to end up in the jaws of a huge, gnarly croc? Well, we expect you to get damaged in a fire or explosion. Now you bring these pictures to us and expect sympathy? wink

Have a speedy recovery and good luck on scoring all the meds that you need!

P.S. Nice hairdo!

Blast I have to agree with Grouch, You are supposed to be injured whilst blowing things up NOT Lymphomas (you silly twit).

Also ask for Norco next time lots less addicting than Vicodan

Thanks all! I wish I had known about Norco before going in for the surgery. The toxicity of Tylenol always scares me and I avoid it as much as possible. Lower addiction rate is also a great thing.

I have to admit, I'm treating this situation as a much-needed vacation. I don't have to go to work, I don't have to watch the kids or do anything around the house, I have a stack of movies and frozen egg rolls lined up and if I get bored there's always the color-shooting fingertips. smile

They're probably still ticked off about that last Willy Wonka movie.

Seriously, get well soon Blast!
