Is it just me? Most of the pain killers I've ever been given do that - no help with pain, and they make me sick. And of course, many make me stupid.

Hi, I posted the last of Feb and appreciate the replys from everyone especially the indepth info from Helen D. Thanks--this helps so much.
I am sure the pains & discomfort that I have been experiencing are due to adhesions that have occured after a hysterectomy a year ago Janurary.
My questions are: Do any of you take hydrocodone (lortab) for adhesion related pain? I have taken this for quite some time.Before my surgery for the pain caused by endo/adeno/etc. Then for post op pain relief. But I was never able to quit them due to continuing pain episodes since my surgery. Is this okay to use long term? I know it is addicting...yet it eases the pain so much and makes it possible to lead an active lifestyle. I racewalk and teach spinning at the YMCA. What other pain medications seem to work for you all? Have any of you had to remain on narcotics long term? Thank-you for listening and please reply and let me know what medicines & effects of you have knowledge of.
