Hi everyone I am 5 weeks postop from a l5-s1 fusion and decompression. I feel pretty good right now, but am still on pain meds. Is it ok to still be on pain meds 5 weeks after surgery? Right after surgery I was taking percocet 7.5 2 pills every 4 hours and I am currently taking one every six hours. I was just curious if this is normal and not too much. I start pt in one week. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
