I posted a previus question about having 50 percocets left.Well I decided to go cold turkey. I am on day 3, and was wondering how long it will last?The worst is the insomnia and the restless legs. I was taking them for a previous problem with a 80 day hospital stay(I have diabetes and my doctor at the time did not take a pilonidal cyst very seriously and I ended up with Fournier's Gangrene-which is flesh eating bacteria in my private area.Ended up with a colostomy,in a coma for 32 days,and a leve four bedsore on my coccyx). Sorry to vent,just wondering how long the bad symptoms will last?
Oh my Gosh! You have had more than any one person should have to take! And on top of that you are trying to kick the percs? God bless you. You are one strong person. The only advice I could give is hot showers, lots of sweating, drink as much water and gatorade as humanly possible, stay in a quiet, dimly lit room, take advil and imodiumAD. It will start to get better in a few more days. Each day it will be less and less miserable, I promise. Hang in there. I am pulling for you BIG TIME! You have the courage of a lion. Stay strong and find a little comfort in knowing you have support here from many good people!
