I am slowly typing one-handed, Three weeks today, I had an unexpected hard fall on a concrete floor resulting in a broken arm. I finally had surgery five days later after agony with every move. To give you the intensity of the pain, the first step of surgery is blocking the nerve before anesthesia. After surgery, I was given more opioids , 50 to be exact after the 15 I took waiting for surgery.
Now here is the dilemma. . . . . . the pain was excruciating, I wanted relief from that but I didn’t want to get addicted. And I felt terrible fuzzy headed and nauseous taking them, and the pain was only dulled!
A dear friend sent me a nonaddictive pain relief shared by a pharmacist who said 80 per cent of the world has no access to opioids.
DISCLAIMER; I am not a doctor or a pharmacists. I have and am using these over the counter products. I am not using alcohol and have liver disease. Always check with your physician, The pain is tolerable and my head is clearer. I am resolved that healing and pain are slow. I thank God for His mercy to me as I continue to heal.
Here are the directions;
2 200 mg Aleve every 12 hours
2 extra strength Tylenol in between after 6 hours

Would love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
