Vicodin did squat for the pain and made me more sick to my stomach than precocet did. I actually threw up on vicodin. Yuck!! My last dose of vicodin was friday at 7am, and that was the end of it. I am now taking just ibuprofen and feel 75% better than I did on narcotics. All day yesterday was rough, I think I still had the narcotics in my system, but this morning when i woke up, my stomach was less upset that I could actually eat some toast. The pain is not as bad as I thought it would be on just ibuprofen, but I am also 5 days post op so that could be why I am not in that much pain.
Either way, its no more prescriptions for me, I'll stay with ibuprofen!!

Thank you for all your advice while I go through this weird time.

just a heads up....when you do have to take vicodin or any other pain med that makes you feel like throwing up.....get a prescription for REGLAN that will stop the nausea. If you itch, take benedryl....I'm alergic to Vicodin but it does help for pain but I have to take reglan or I get sick. Always have a prescription for reglan in your medicine cabinet for those situations.

good luck
