I had my first Rx of Vicodin in 12/2009. I had my first surgery to repair my L5,S1 on 06/2010 and that was followed by my second and third surgeries both in 07/2010. I have now been on Vicodin and Percocet since then. These drugs take away my pain and allow me to enjoy life's pleasures. In my opinion, I am not abusing them. I make sure that I do not use over the 4mgs. of acetemenophen as suggested by the FDA.
How long can I stay on these drugs or am I already too long on them? I have tried other pain management programs that my doctor has recommended, but the pills are definitely the best. They work quickly and are effedtive.
What do any of you say?
