NO HYDROCODONE! I am happy to say that yesterday I took no hydrocodone and only ibuprofen! I really wanted to quit taking the heavier pain meds. I do not have an addictive personality at all. I have no fear of getting hooked on pain meds but I wanted to eliminate them from the equation. Believe me, if I thought I needed the pain reliever, I would take it.
Showering is getting much better and scabbing sloughs off more each day! Very little irritation from the shower today.
