Cold packs/covered ice packs applied to the cheek over the afflicted area can go a long way towards relieving pain where the ibuprofen leaves off and to reducing swelling. Generally 20 min on, 20 min off; but, you can titrate for effect.

BTW, you're not anywhere near the max dose for ibuprofen; however, more than OTC strength puts it in Rx territory and you should consult your physician or dentist to ensure it's safe for you to exceed the OTC dosage in light of your individual medical history.

If you can take acetaminophen, it can be combined with ibuprofen for improved pain relief. It's typically done by alternating dosages every 3 hours. Take your 6 hr. OTC dosage of ibuprofen, 3 hrs. later the 6 hr. OTC dosage of acetaminophen, 3 hrs. later another 6 hr. dose of ibuprofen, 3 hrs. later another 6 hr. dose of acetaminophen ... etc. You should not; however, be taking ETOH with either of these.

Good luck 'till Monday.

ETA: I see you've just posted about the oxycodone. That should make things easier. Still best to nix the ETOH.

You left out, Rub Some Dirt On It, Nancy. What kind of quack are you?

I'm sorry to hear this.

I'm really liking our open plan floor. The claims floor has a really good energy to it. As you walk down the floor to the lift or drinks machine at break you're catching peoples' eyes and waving at each other, or rocking up to a different team area and having a quick chat.

The team areas themselves generate nice interaction and sense of camaraderie. You hear one of your teammates handing a difficult call, and the rest of you share a bit of a giggle- because we all know what that conversation is like - the person having that conversation may be rolling their eyes or miming suicide to the rest of the team - and someone is always asking if anyone knows how to do X on the system, or whether Y is covered under a particular policy definition.

There will be periods of intense activity and then when the pace slows down we have a bit of a laugh. Actually we have a lot of a laugh a lot of the time.

At least I remembered that telling him to bite on a bullet was contraindicated in this instance.

Ya ever washed all your silverware, by hand?


glatt 05-30-2017 02:19 PM

And the drawer too, I hope?

Gravdigr 05-30-2017 02:23 PM

Wiped, washed, soaked w/Lysol. As was the silverware organizer. I woulda tossed the organizer, but it's oak, and the finish is still highly glossy, so it got the treatment, too.

Maybe we'll get by with no mouse-shit-transferrable diseases.

How many traps are set around the house?

Gravdigr 05-31-2017 12:31 AM

One ol' fashioned neck snapper, one sticky trap.

I once found myself incredibly offended to realize that, while I lived in a place that had 27 feral cats spread between 2.5 acres of properties, THERE WERE MICE IN MY FKKN HOUSE.




I put out neck-snappers, caught nothing with cheese, nothing with peanut butter and that's usually the go-to for luring those little vermin.

I had to use BUTTER. Not peanut butter, dairy-based butter! I realized that when I got up one morning, saw the little (so many unladylike words) dive under the top of the propane-powered stove, and saw the little teeth marks in a dab of butter that had gotten left out.

So if nothing else works, use butter for bait and see if that does the trick.
