Is it ok to take a hydrocodone (they are huge) or do they come out whole from the stoma? I have only taken one since my operation and don't remember seeing it in my bag but don't want to cause a blockage. Tonight my back is bothering me for some odd reason (probably the osteoporosis) and those darn hemorroids are throbbing.

they dissolve a lot easier. It is a powder-based pill, not like those plastic-like capsules that always wind up in the bag or for me in between my arse cheeks. They should dissolve in your stomach before it even reaches your small intestines.

it should be fine, if a pill is scored, you can always cut it in half too, and that will help
