Discussions that mention vicodin

rhonva,

I had a thrombosed external hemorrhoid removed about 3 months ago. All they did was inject it with Lidocain,make an incision,removed the clot,put some packing in it and sent me on my way, when I got home i thought boy do I feel great and then an hour later my Lidocain wore off and I will NEVER forget the pain I thought I was going to die! After 1-2 weeks of Vicodin and ice packs I was back to normal definately worth the procedure it has not returned! The only advice I can give you is putting some frozen peas in a zip lock baggie and putting it in your rectum will help tremendously with the pain and swelling and please remember that vicodin constipates big time!!!Wish someone would have told me that,good luck with your recovery!
