New plan

Today I plan to substitute Tylenol #3 for the much stronger oxycodone. I will still take the oxycodone at night to allow myself to get a good night's sleep. I just don't like the way the muscle relaxer and oxycodone pain pills make me feel.

So we will see how my plan works out. I still have a lot of pain in my hip and lower back. But if the Tylenol #3 works and I am able to ignore the pain and function during the day it will be worth the change.

Of course if after stopping the oxycodone, I find myself sitting in the chair all tensed up; I will have to go back on the stronger medicine. As I understand it the purpose of the pain medicine along with the muscle relaxer is to alleviate the pain so I don't tense up allowing the muscles to heal.
