I'm a bit disappointed to be honest. They gave me endone instead of oxycotin, the latter was heaps better.

Just want to put my recommendation for "Inside Llewyn Davis" as one of the best movies I've seen so far 2013-2014. Great soundtrack as well. Oscar Isaac is great, and the Coen brothers have done really well with this one.

Foxy, I have only ever prescribed oxycontin for major joint or back surgery. Endone is excellent as an opioid analgesic, and appropriate for post ENT procedures (titratable). Asking for contin would be suspicious....... plus, it would constipate the fuck out of you. 

Here ya go, Foxy... (Click to show)

It will relieve the pain but most people report it doesn't give that floating all the world is alright feeling of euphoria. Might be dose dependent.

yep medicos get suspicious if you ask for a drug by name. And a drug that makes you feel good is seen as wrong - until recently there was a widespread view that to relieve pain completely wasn't somehow proper. Its still a prevailing view in the community and even in palliative care..

Having had lifelong small kidney stones/gravel I know how it works. I also know the hierarchy of decent medication and mostly you won't get the best. There was a stage when I had to have a shower, fix hair and get dressed in a suit, clean shirt and tie in the middle of the night, to go to A&E to get treated well. If I went in jeans and unwashed I was viewed as a desperado. Now they have my record so its better. And they aren't so keen to keep you overnight once you have a history. And they will use the right drugs. I can also get my specialist and GP to prescribe "just in case" stuff for airplane flights and such to have in advance and i can titrate myself or/and combine judiciously and knowledgeably with other stuff {wink} I remember one bad rainy night I was very bad, managed to get Ms to take me to after hours clinic where I got a huge jab of peth. Then had to go to late night to chemist to get peth tablets to see me through. Unfortunately I was on the nod by the time I got to chemist and had a bit of a job to get the script filled. Luckily I knew it would happen and had the GPs number for them to ring. They still looked at me suspiciously and treated me weird/badly while I was there. Nowadays I kind of look almost respectable.

I know the drug because I had an operation on my throat for the same issue this time last year. At the same hospital by the same doctor. I was prescribed oxycotin when I left last time. Whilst it didn't give me a euphoric feeling, it did make me a lot more numb and kick a hundred percent of the pain. I'm finding the endone to only get rid of say 65%-80%. I also found it interesting. Just before I went into theatre yesterday they gave me two pieces of damp tissue up my nose. I was then informed it was cocaine to open up my and numb my nose. I thought it was a big joke my doctor was playing on me but ten minutes later he clearly wasn't joking, it was a large dosage too.

wouldn't be proper high grade coke medicos use at parties it would be novacaine I'd guess. Still any port in a storm

Generally people don't mind you sucking on the old laughing gas if you ask nicely. Worth a snort or two. For some people it gets them there

I didn't really feel much considering ten minutes after I had it they put me under.

On a more sartorial note. Luxire will make me a lined Mac from epic fabric for $500 or $300 for one of their in house technical fabrics.

Foxy and fxh talk drugs - not quite as interesting as I had hoped. This comment made me laugh though -

Obviously not actually funny but just made me think of fxh saying to the lovely Mrs fxh - "Yes darling, I really do need another pair of double monks and this unstructured Italian blazer...you know for the A&E visits. Got to sprezz up for the drugs, babe."

Those who have met him in real life will attest that this is how he speaks, "copped" this, "Grail status" that. Honestly...

He also likes using "deets",."steezy"and keeps quoting Doge.

I'm now more impressed by fxh than ever - I didn't realise that he spoke mediaeval Italian!

No, silly, Elphias Doge from Harry Potter.

I think fxh is more akin to Marin Falier than Andrea Gritti...

I've been going for a high rise on all my MTM (Luxire) suits. It's very comfortable. Some people have reacted favourably, some don't like it. Mostly positive comments, though. There are some photos around the place.

I'm pretty confident that high rise is going to roar back into fashion in the next 2-3 years.

I have also gone for single reverse pleats on my high rise pants, I think it helps the look immensely.
