Thank you, ladies. I'm getting a grip on myself.
My pain pills are 325 mg of acetaminophen, 5 mg of codeine or oxycodeine, something like that (the pill bottle is upstairs)
We know acetaminophen is bad for the liver. I read that 4 grams is the limit in 24 hours, and that's for a healthy liver.
I'm sure everyone has heard how Tylenol (acetaminophen) has ruined peoples livers.
So I found instructions for separating the acetaminophen from the pain killer and process my pills before taking them. You got to watch out for your health. Stay informed! Don't trust the doctors.
I'm only taking them in the evening. I stretch my ankle tendons during the day and I don't want the sensation muddled by pain killers. And I don't think I could, but I don't want to become hooked on a pain killers buzz. It's not pleasant anyway. Like out of control and clumsy. Like being drunk.
I told the EMTs on the way to the hospital; the ER hospital medical staff; and the ortho doctor I am seeing for follow up treatment that I am recovering from liver disease. And they give me a sh##load of pain pills (100) with enough acetaminophen that can destroy a good liver.
