Rehab (for the fifth time) might just be doing the trick. Lindsay Lohan apparently refused to take painkillers during a stint at the dentist for surgery this week. A source told RadarOnline that the starlet, “had teeth removed and won’t even take any painkillers for the pain.”
That’s commitment, guys. One visit to the dentist and we’re screaming for respite. But then again, we’re not in rehab for a supposed coke addiction. Lindsay of old would’ve bolted for some Dilaudid as she did a couple of months ago when she got her wisdom teeth removed. ‘The stronger the painkiller, the better’ was the motto. Not anymore, it seems! The source added, “She’s taking her time at Betty Ford very seriously.” We’re hoping that’s not a publicist’s schtick.
It’s been a good week (gnawing pain aside) for Lindsay, who just reunited with her father, Michael Lohan. There are plenty of folks who are going to say that the reunion and this no-painkillers story are both PR stunts. They might just be, but if they’re keeping her clean, who cares! Whatever it takes to get the job done. Five times in rehab at the age of 24 is enough!
