Re: somebody help

Kalleigh,

I don't have alot of right giving out advice, but, could not let your post slip by for the mere fact that you have come so very far!!! And I know, from experience, you may think you can take just a couple for pain and it will be okay, but it won't! PLEASE don't ruin what you have worked so hard for!! Just simply tell your doctor that the vicodin makes you too sleepy and ask him to help you find a effective non-narcotic med. That's it!

Have you tried Bextra? My f-i-l says it helps him and he is a recovering cancer patient. Just a thought...

Please stay strong and God bless,
michelle
