Discussions that mention vicodin

Open to All Other Health Topics board

My son is 20 years old, he had them removed this past November. He went into surgery at 9:30 and by 2:00 we were on our way home.
They gave him Vicodin for the pain and Amoxicillian for infection. He was told he would feel a little better and then by the third day start feeling cruddy again, as the healing process is difficult. He had surgery on Thursday and did pretty good until Tuesday when his girlfriend called and said he is looking for more than Vicodin to take, I left work to go be with him as she had to go into work, he was able to alternate Ibuprofin with the vicodin and it helped some.

The scabbing process is the worst, you scab and then it begins to slouph off, and this is painful. Lots of
ice water, ice chips, No red anything to eat as the dye is hard to distinguish from bleeding if there is any.
He was miserable ,but by the following Saturday (1 week and 2 days) he was feeling better.

Hope this helps.
Take care :)
