Hello, I am new here this is my first post. My sister is having a TLIF next month and is very concerned about post-op pain. She has had other surgeries and has suffered in pain because she can't tolerate pain pills, she vomits. And this is going to be her worst surgery yet. Dr. said probably seven hours in the OR. Does anyone have any alternatives to pain pills post-op at home. She also has very sensitive skin so she's not sure if a pain patch would work. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you.
