After surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in my pinky, they gave me percoset. I took one pill as far apart as I could manage the pain. But I will see I don't see the appeal. The pain reduction was nice, but the loopy feeling was repulsive.
Interesting note- the pinky surgery was in CO. I had far more invasive wrist surgery ( cross section taken out, titanium plate screwed in, tendons re positioned) in FL, and the guy pretty much refused to prescribe anything more than Tylenol with Codeine. I wanted to punch that ortho next time I saw him. My mom loaned me some stuff to get through the first few days. I am guessing they were scaling back on the prescriptions due to the epidemic of abuse. But I just wanted something that actually DOES have some sort of affect. Pretty sure you could load me up with codeine and it would do absolutely nothing for me. Body chemistry or something. My sister is the same way.
This was 18 years ago, but I had a pin driven into my ring finger on my dominant hand (in between my last two semesters of Architecture school back when you had to hand draft). I also only got super tylenol. A couple weeks earlier, I had kidney stone surgery. I also only got Tylenol. Coulda used something better then though...
