So Why the Vicodin?

Well...it started with pulling a kayak full of water out of the lake and ended with a cough that caused a pain in my hip that made me want to puke. After two weeks of hell I finally went to the Dr. today and there is no herniated discs, fractures, or other bone involvement.

So what is wrong and why can't I sit, stand, bend, twist or turn to wipe my...well you get the picture. He thinks I have torn a muscle in my lower back somewhere around my sacroiliac on my right side. What now?

I get to go through physical therapy, take lots of medicine: lortab for pain, flexeril for muscle spasms and naporsin for inflammation and see another specialist in two weeks. Of course the physical therapist can't see me for 10 days.

I think the heating pad may be permanently attached to my ass by then. Wonder what specialist they send you to for that?

I'm not sure what specialist you see, but I think the procedure is either a RIPITOFFAMEY or a CUTITOFFAMEY.

I See You!
