I definitely don't mind The narcotics work better at blocking the pain, but I have a nasty intolerance to them and just vomit all day when I'm on them so that was a no go, especially with an incision that is supposed to be healing. So I use Tylenol and ibuprofen (high mgms) and I make sure to always stay on top of the pain. These first few days I was told to take them no matter what, even if I'm not feeling pain yet, because it can really sneak up on you. Also, deep breathing whenever i stand up or sit down helps me a lot. I hope something like this works for you

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!
