  • Have you seen an orthopedist? They can do all sorts of awesome stuff. I took advil, but it wound up eating a hole in my stomach and I needed surgery anyway.

  • I just had surgery today; lots of fluid, caused by a big piece of bone that was floating around in there. I've taken vicodin and percocet - and honestly it still hurt a little. You really need to see an orthopedist, he/she will fix you up in no time.

  • i take celebrex, it helps keep the swelling down...i also have to get the fluid drawn off and a cortisone shot every 6 months
