Re: RustyBrooks abandons LSD

Pain is fine now. Also I hadn't looked at the instructions for my pain med prescription because although I had a new prescription, the pharmacy wouldn't fill it. They thought I was drug seeking or something. I finally got it this morning. I still had 8 or so left from last weeks so I'd been taking those as needed. New scrip was same dose although I was advised to take 2 instead of 1. That would have probably really helped that first night if I'd known. Now I have *60* pills which seems like a lot. I still have a few from last week when I was prescribed 20. I really doubt I'll even take 20 of the new prescription.

I can not poop again, it sucks. I am eating huge bowls of fruit daily (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, melons), fiber cereal, leafy greens, raw tomatoes, stool softeners, tons of water. It's been since monday. I think today I'll start with the prunes.

Re: RustyBrooks abandons LSD

Hope you are doing a little better by now. Sucks you had to have surgery.
Fruit and fiber should do the trick for your second problem. Is the constipation brought on by the pain meds or an ongoing battle?

Pretty much just from the opiods I think. I actually started pooping a few days ago though and it's been fine since. I only take a Percocet now if I'm going to do something I know will hurt, or sometimes before bed if it aches

I have heard wildly varying estimates. I have a follow up today, we'll see

Re: RustyBrooks abandons LSD

I did my first post-surgery road ride yesterday. 20 mile out and back ride to a nearby town. Went OK. My shoulder did not bother me at all, the hand was sore and it was difficult to brake and shift on the left.

My company is moving offices next month, to a new location that is both 5 miles further, about 800 feet more climbing, and down a series of roads that are considerably less safe to ride on. That might be the end of me commuting to work, which is too bad, because it was an easy way to get 5 or 6 hours/week of cycling in. Since that 6 hours of riding replaced about 3.5-4 hours of driving, it only cost me 2-2.5 hours of my time. So now to get the same number of cycling hours in, I'll have to take more of my personal time.

I may try something else, like maybe riding to the train station, taking the train to a downtown stop and then riding to work. I could probably make my total bike distance about 15 miles that way. But it would probably take much longer, so it wouldn't really help much.

Re: RustyBrooks abandons LSD

You are back on the bike faster then I would have thought. Sucks about your commute. I never commuted as often as I should have, but they closed the showers at work because the bathroom didn't conform to the ADA act. Rather then spend any money updating it they just closed it. Tough to commute in Texas without being able to shower when you get there. Maybe in December and January I can.

Re: RustyBrooks abandons LSD

Yeah if there was no shower I couldn't commute. All the jobs I've had since I started riding had showers. In Austin there are a few places you can stop and shower - like some bike shops will have showers you can use, so if you work relatively near there that can work. If your commute is short enough you could probably get away with it. But 25 miles, whether in winter or summer, I am going to need a shower when I get there.

It's funny you said this seems short, seemed like forever to me. I think it was almost 6 weeks off a bike (outside - like 3 weeks off if you count riding indoors)

Have had a hard time riding this week, people I work with who are from overseas are here so I've been driving here and often going out after work with them.
