Hi everyone!! I made it through the surgery, I am back at work today (not sure if that is a good thing or not). Have my yoga pants on. My doctor did what I wanted him to do and gave me the lesser 5/325 Norco at quantity 30. I took them very sparingly, and am now taking ibuprofen. I still have 15 pills left in case of pain, but do not think that I will be needing them. My surgery was seven days ago, so I'm glad that I only needed to take half the amount that was given. I was so freaked out by getting the "high" feeling, but I never got it. I was in a lot of pain and very tired so every time I took one, I just went to sleep. And I was really really freaked out about getting the withdrawals again, but since I took so few, I didn't get them at all :) I felt weird and shaky after the anesthesia and fentanyl wore off that they gave me before and after surgery (anesthesia before, fentanyl after). But I think I felt that way last time too. I feel a lot better but my insides kind of feel bloated and like I pulled a muscle, but pain is subsiding. I will see how I feel after sitting in my chair for 8 hours, if I can handle that. Thank you all for your advice. No withdrawal, no craving, no nothing. I don't even want to take another pill, so I guess I'm good. If I don't need anymore of them in the next couple of days, I will have my fiance get rid of them so they are not in the house. Anyway, I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving and hope you all have a wonderful holiday!!
