I had wrist surgery yesterday morning and I am high as kite on pain medicine called Hydrocodone, a Vicodin generic. I was supposed to be back to work tomorrow but from the looks of it, I will be out the entire week. Newsflash, when someone cuts you open an drills screws into your bone it hurts, it really hurts. It hurts so much that you can barely sleep. So not only am I high, I am really sleepy. Add to that the drug side effects, which includes constipation, and the healing process, which includes lots of swelling and ice packs, and you have a party [insert sarcastic smirk here]. This sucks.
P.S. It took me about 15 minutes to write this crappy post and I fell asleep twice while doing it. Sad.
Update: Also, here’s an x-ray of my wrist two weeks after surgery.
