is this good news?

hey there

not to nit pick every time I burp, but I had a question of you all.

it is week 6 of self diagnosed herniation

I am popping the flexerils and vicodin's every 6 hours as prescribed.

just a little note.

"these days" I can pop the pills, and sit with pillows under lower back (against the wall in bed)
and NOT feel like dying.

as in

3 weeks ago i felt horrible all the time, and now as long as i take the pills and sit like a good boy, its a bit better.

I know sitting is a NO NO, but laying down hurts after about 10 mins.
if i am to "listen to my body" then sitting on my bed with my back against the wall on 7 pillows seems to work.

anyway, my point is..

even though its a BABY STEP.

3 weeks ago the pills had no effect , now they do

so i suppose that means, I am a bit better....i suppose.
meaning "I can CUT THE PAIN"

i know thats kinda like making lemons into hydrocodone lemonade but hey, give me a break

Re: is this good news?

well it doesnt matter if it is baby steps. you are making improvment, and im glad the meds and sitting against wall of bed works. i think if you can find a position that helps reduce the pain go for it no matter how stupid or funny it is.
im happy for you and hope you improve even more by each day
