Hey, at least he gave him fair warning. And does this FML make anyone think of that South Park episode?

It's going to be hard not to think of it when you know the names for it. Try "bezoar" or "fecolith" for starters. I've heard they found bezoars in Elvis and John Wayne after they died. Sorry about reinforcing a disturbing image, but at least your cursing will become a little more interesting. You could tell someone you don't like, "I hope you get a bezoar the size of a watermelon and it should come out sideways."

Oh, so true. Between that and kidney stones, my wishings on people I dislike are going to turn painful in the most interesting ways!

Just so your comment doesn't look stupid: This originally said "roc-hard". A roc is a mythical bird. The FML staff fixed it.

FML or YDI? I'm having trouble deciding. Either A) You have an injury so severe and are in so much pain that you require are a prescription of morphine. In that case FYL, indeed. Or B) You're a morphine addict who has taken enough to stop your intestines. Then YDI. Since the doctor was contemptuous toward you I tend to suspect option B.

FML....the doctor AND the pharmacist should have consulted him that constipation was a very common side effect of opioids. Very often, they'll also prescribe a small dose of stool softener like Dulcolax to prevent this from happening.

That's another reason I think this was posted by an addict. If this morphine was prescribed by a doctor and administered by a pharmacist they would have given the OP a stool softener or laxative. The only way the OP could have gotten a dose of morphine without also getting stool softener is if they got it off the street. So YDI
