I had ACDF C5-C6 in Sept and I am still in pain, not as much as before surg but still having neck and Rt arm pain. So I have been taking Lortab 5-500 twice a day, Robaxin 5oo every 8 hrs, Mobic one a day and neurontin 3 a day. My neurosurg told me it could be a year before I saw a improvement and I can tell my bad days are not quite as bad as they have been. So I call my neurosurg last week for a refill on my Lortab and the nurse tells me this will be the last narcotic he will give me......WTF???
Now here is where I need some advice, should I see a PM doc or just go to my PCP. I tried to quit the Lortab last month but I was taking so much Advil and APAP in its place I was wrecking my guts.
