Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board

Thanks all who sent happy thoughts yesterday. It was better than I thought it would be in that it didn't take nearly as long as I thought. I was out of the hosptital in 4 hours (and that includes the hour wait beforehand). Unfortunately, I can't say that the pain part was easy. I told the nurse I've had 3 kids, and that was worse than childbirth! They had to check ALL of my lumbar discs. Even the numbing shots hurt. But whichever one they checked last (I'm betting on L5-S1), was the worst. I thought I was going to die. Fortunately, it doesn't last long. In less than a minute the pain was subsiding. But then they had to give me more sedative because I was having a really hard time getting my breathing under control. And now I'm just really, really sore. So I'm staying home from work today, and I'm taking my Vicodin and life will be good. :bouncing:

So, again, thanks all for your kind thoughts and support. I'm so glad I found this board. You guys are all angels in disguise. :angel:
