I am not a huge fan of pain killers. They are important, and I take them, but sparingly and when I need to be pain free, ie, work or can't back out of something.
I was given a scrip for percoset, and I filled it, without the intention of taking it. I decided to take homeopathic remedies instead. I have been taking arnica and symphytum. My mom has taken only arnica for two relatively minor surgeries, with great success, so I thought I'd give it a go.
So far, 3rd full day after accident, and 2nd after the freezing wore off, I'm feeling pretty good. There is some discomfort and pain but it's tolerable. J was saying "wow, you must have a really high tolerance for pain, healing bones are painful!" I'm going to say it's the remedies!
