    Apparently this drug was also a part of the NFL concussion lawsuit.

    making a mental note to call my dr.
    this shit has to better than the over the counter crap he suggested I take between cortisone injections.

    This stuff will come in handy while watching Browns games.

    Leave that crap alone, guys. I know it's in jest, but here's my story...

    My wife just had back surgery exactly three weeks ago. Prior to that, the emergency room doc prescribed her this crap.

    She couldn't take any of the other meds she had for

    I have been in varying degrees of almost constant pain in my right shoulder for a little over 5 years now. First felt it go throwing a baseball warming up before a game. It's steadily gotten worse over the years.
    I have had XRays, MRIs, etc.

    most recent diagnosis: bone spurs impinging the rotator cuff causing inflammation. No realistic surgery to "fix" it.

    best case scenario is cortisone shot 2/3 times a year (they actually work for about 2 weeks) and over the counter NSAIDs.

    other than that. deal with it. and it will continue to deteriorate as I get older.

    i'll be 37 in a couple of weeks and most days I can't even play catch for more than 5 minutes with my son that plays travel ball.

    so no, it wasn't in jest.
    I'm actually going to ask my doc about it on my next visit.

    Sorry, guys - I didn't see this post didn't contain all my story in it's gory details....

    So, what happened was, she was given a prescription of this crap by an ER doctor.
    Come to find out, she couldn't take any of the other meds she was already prescribed for her back if she took this stuff, because of interaction.
    She was taking Gabapentin, Diclofenac, and Cyclobenzaprine. Because of the interaction with all the other drugs, she had to make a choice....
    Stop taking the muscle relaxers and the other meds actually helping her situation, or take this ONE pain med and be higher than hell.

    Didn't matter - she hardly took any of this crap and was just in pain the entire time up until the surgery.

    So they gave her this stuff to manage pain AFTER surgery. She didn't need to take any of the other stuff, just pain meds to manage the pain.

    And the crap constipated her. Badly.
    Anybody that's ever had back surgery knows the dangers that a huge iron block of [Mark May] in your rectum can mean after having that type of surgery.

    We tried stool softeners, other things. Had to do a fleet enema.
    I may as well have been CJ or JT, standing behind center, clapping my hands. Cause stuff flew like a shotgun snap. Luckily, we were prepared.

    Moral of this story is - take this stuff knowing a few things prior to taking it. I'm not saying it doesn't help people, but know what the hell you're putting in your body before you do.

    The wife is doing quite well, btw. She just returned to work on Monday part time and is feeling pretty good. This after 3 weeks out of surgery.

    Your mistake here was not countering the constipating effect of the Toradol by increasing the amount of diuretics in her diet. If she were an athlete, she'd have two venti lattes first thing in the morning, then either more coffee, caffeine, or Gatorade up until about one hour before kick off or first pitch, at which point she'd slam back seven or eight 5 Hour Energies.

    That kind of diet will really get the juices flowing, if you know what I mean.

    She drank nothing but water. Maybe that was the issue.
    In any case, it sucked for her, and we were worried that she'd herniate another disk by straining too hard.
