My plan is to NOT take any hydrocodone today and see if ibuprofen is enough. Each day is progressively better! I was much more careful in the shower today and massaged very gently. It still irritated my scalp a bit but I really want to get some of that scabbing "grud" off of my head. I did take some ibuprofen. I will see whether I think I need hydrocodone before going to bed.
