How Long after Surgery do I need to be on Pain Meds?
My Surgeon sent me to a Pain Management Doctor a month before my surgery which I thought was weird because I figured I wouldn't need to be on pain meds long after the surgery, but I'm in more pain now than before. It's only been a week since my 2 level cervical fusion and I went to the PM Doctor the other day as they had to increase my meds. I'm currently taking Roxicodone 15 every 3 hours and I'm still in pain, but my question is, how long am I going to be on pain meds for? I know everybody is different, but I would like to hear some of your experiences on this.
