                  Vicodin works very well for me. Like all other pain meds, I do have to take phenergan with it, but I'm so thankful that I have some on hand.

                  Warm hugs,
                  Stay safe

                    Vicodin did help me but you know what really helped and fast? Maybe you have tried it. It was percoset. I was amazed at how fast it took away a pretty bad pain/burn I was dealing with one day. It seemed like minutes! It may have actually been like 15-20 but still. Well, hang in there. tell us how you are doing.
