Discussions that mention hydrocodone

Addiction & Recovery board

I had a car accident two years ago had wrist surgery, then I had a right hip replacement..Ive taken Vicodin or Darvocet for all that time. Then five weeks ago I had the left hip replaced, Im down to three 5/325 hydrocodone a day from 10/500, and I still have pain,I took six of the tens a day post surgery.Will I have less pain getting off these and just taking ibuprofen..thats too many surgeries for me to handle.Hopefully its the last one...I had a hematoma and internal bledding with the hip this last oen which increased the pain. I dont take these to get high, believe me, but will there be an end to these.I want a normal life?????Thats why I HAD the surgery?:jester:
