    Feeling like a turd sandwich!

    So I went to the doctor last Thursday; seems I'm having a lot of pain in my knee that had the replacement and have had for months. X rays were taken. Turns out he thinks I have a stress fracture just below the lower half of the fake joint. Not much they can do about it but replace the entire joint (which would have to be done again in about 10-12 years) or manage it with pain meds. They put me back on the poop (5 Vicodins a day) butI can only seem to take about two a day as they make me feel like I'm going to barf. They never did before, but I've been off them for a year and 3 months. It's the pits-either hurt like hell in my knees or feel like throwing up.

    I go in next Friday for a bone scan.

    I hate getting old.

    I find it's usually better to let Groggy sleep it off.


    I prefer just to let sleeping dwarves lie.

    I don't see how a turd sammich is gonna help.


    Well, apparently his doctor makes a really good one...that's why he went...at least, that was what I garnered from teh first part of his post.

    BS, I know what you mean...my MD put me on Vicodin becaue I can't take NSAIDS now...but I take one, and I ain't doing anything...and the pain isn't really 'gone', just less important....if I take two, I wake up groggy the next day.

    Might take the edge off the Vicodin!

    Yeah, that sucks. Do you eat anything when you take the Vicodin? That might help. If not, like Taylor said, another med should be in order.


    How soon after the joint replacement did this start? Seems like it wasn't that long ago. I wonder if the fracture was there already. The doc say what might cause the fracture?
