ZERO vicodin yesterday and I used an aleve at night and it worked!!! I had company - lots of company and the love and activity - while it tired me out, kept me off the computer and kept me from feeling stressed.  The first two days hurt very very bad.  Cooking and all.  But yesterday, no cooking, no computer, they left midday and I felt good enough to go wtihout pain pills.  I hurt, but still.  8/108/11 three vicodin8/12 three and half vicodin8/13 ZERO pain pills
