|The Scream by a little known Norwegian artist called Edvard Munch|
When I first got medication from the doctor containing codein, the pharmacist told me the codein could cause a bit of constipation. In order to combat that from the start, it might be wise to use some type of liquid. But did I listen?
So, moving on a few months and even though with a lot of walking the pain in my leg has become less, the pain in my side/groin area was still very present. In the end I admitted defeat, went back to the pharmacy and got some laxatives. Which I took last Friday night. They worked a treat and by Saturday night, I was ready to party. Albeit without alcohol. Well, as long as I didn't eat, I was ready to party. As soon as I did eat, my intestines were having their own party. I went home early.
By Monday my body was more or less back to normal, even the twitch of pain in my side/groin area was a bit better. By Tuesday I was feeling quite good. By Wednesday I had decided that tonight was the night: no pills whatsoever. Nothing was burning, twitching, aching.
I woke up on Thursday morning. Around 3am. Menstral cramps!
