I went to the PM's office today. She said that at this point most people are not having spasms like I am. She upped the dosage on my Percocet and outfitted me with a TENS unit. She said that recovery could take up to a year. And that many people have had good response to the TENS. She was very firm on the one year recovery position.
All I want to know is why the he!! was I told 3 to 6 months for recovery. Will the TENS help? I know only time will tell but I'm a bit frustrated as well that this wasn't offered sooner. I've been dealing with movements suddenly setting off spasms that leave me in tears.
I see my neurosurgeon in about a month. I hope he can give me some answers about all of this. Honestly, right now I don't notice a lot of improve from pre-surgical. I'm praying the TENS helps.
