My girlfriend had a cyst removed from her back Two

Patient : My girlfriend had a cyst removed from her back. Two stitches, painful for her. She was prescribed hydrocodone. She is an alcoholic. Should she skip the hydrocodone? She can't skip the booze.
Symptoms:  Alcoholic prescribed hydrocodone
Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query. Noted the history of your girlfriend undergoing the surgery to remove the cyst with only 2 stitches. One does not need any hydrocodone for a 2-stitch surgery. She can skip hydrocodone. Actually booze too is a good analgesic but can cause edema at the site of surgery hence better be avoided. I hope this answers your query.
