Well Doc, I am backed-up and barfing if you really want to know how I feel. The porcelain god is frowning on me from his throne in the sky. That medicine that you gave me has really got me plugged-up and hugging the toilet at the same time. Go figure! I would rather take the pain than have my innards all tied up in knots. No thank you! You can keep that junk called medicine.
Sound familiar; the list of side effects caused by many medications used to treat chronic pain includes: constipation and vomiting. Some people can have one without the other; some people can have both problems. Either way, gut problems are not fun and can actually prevent one from taking an adequate amount of pain medications.

This is the first study to report the long-term results of total knee replacement (TKR) in obese patients after more than 10 years. Other studies have followed patients for shorter periods of time. Researchers compared two groups of patients with TKR. One group had a body mass index greater than 30, which means they were obese. The control group had the same TKR, but these patients were not overweight. A special computer program was used to match patients from each group. The patients were paired based on gender, age at the time of surgery, type of arthritis, and length of follow-up after surgery. Level of activity after TKR was also measured for each patient. The researchers reported the following findings: Only 70 percent of the obese group had a successful outcome. This was compared to 90 percent in the control group.
