You know, I had surgery in June and the doctor told me he doubted he could make me pain free but could bring me down from a 8 to a 3 or 4 on the pain scale. So now I'm wondering when is this suppose to happen? I mean I'm still on pain meds and there are times I cant hardly get outta bed. I definately don't have the mobility I had before...I can't get off the couch or some chairs without help from my husband. It just drives me up the wall that you go into this thing with the hopes of having a better life afterwards and some of us are left afterwards wondering if it was all worth it.
The surgery was my last resort and I know I would've gotten worse over time but I guess I'm just tired of hurting.
How long does it generally take to get some sort of normality back in your life?
