I am only takng maybe 1 Vicodin a day (it was making me feel nauseaus the first couple of days so I switched mostly to Tylenol). I am healing pretty well - I was able to get up and down myself on the 3rd day and the pain is very tolerable. The CO2 gas was the worst of it I think.
I have probably had the issue 3x per day the last 2 days - doesn't matter if I eat low fat or not. Just have to run to the bathroom right after eating. I bought the Caltrate a couple of hours ago. Took my first 1/2 tablet. I just ate pasta with little sauce for dinner. No issues thus far.
Thanks for the help!
