I sm five weeks post surgery 2 level PILF with instruments and BMP. I am on 75 Fentyl patch and taking 30 MG oxycodone every 4 hours, and have 5 mg vallium as needed for muscle spasms. I try to walk as much as possible. I cant drive, cant even sit up straight in car, can sit for maybe 15 minutes in chair. Am I being wimp? My pre surgery pain was quite intense. I had 3 discs with tears, 2 with annular tears. I was on 50 fently and 15 oxycodone before surgery. My Dr told me that I woulod be on this meds for quite a few months yet. I just have so much pain, wondered if I was alone in this. I also get quite wiped out. But my surgery was almost 8 hours long.
