Sept. 8,
I'll hopefully be on my way to a better way of life.
Just thought some good news is better than no news.
The Dr. Says that I should ask myGP for opioids.

But until then, I'm still in the acute and chronic
Pain mode.. man it's killing me!
I'm only taking
Tylenol 3
For the pain.
Any suggestions on my choice of mess?

Was that dr not able to prescribe you something? Opioids are usually given for a short amount of time after surgery. My GP won't write a script for anything higher than a Norco. I get my medications from my pain management doctors. Do you have those kind of specialists where you are from?

I agree if you are in a lot of pain ask for at least Vicodin. It will help you. Good luck.
