Its been since 8.11.08 since I had my L4/L5 S1 discectomy. I still have bad pains down my left leg. I practically live on my couch now. I have had a headache for the past week. To the point where I get sick. My doc says its the Percocet. I have not had one for almost a week no. Don't smoke or drink since I have been out of work for maybe 2 months now. Nothing will get rid of this headache. Not sure what I have to look forward to.
