Good news! I’m officially off “the meds” for pain.
I was prescribed Oxycodon and Tylenol which completely numbed the pain. Honestly, I was scared to see what life was like with out them. But they turned me into a zombie 🧟♀️ and I really didn’t like that!
Also there were side effects: sore legs, exhaustion and constipation. 😭 So yesterday I decide to stop cold turkey 🦃 and instead did natural remedies. And my legs stop hurting and I’m no long constipated. The pain is still there, mostly when moving or reaching — but if I’m sitting or resting there’s no pain. And I took a shower today! Praise! I can see why people get addicted to Oxy after a major surgery— you literally are numb everywhere.
