I think I am "smoking crack", when I think about life after my ACDF surgery. I really thought that I would be on pain meds for about 2 weeks, I have a high pain tolarence (had c-section and took nothing when i came home from hosp). But I am reading that alot of people are still on their pain meds even after 2 months.
what is the norm? I know that everyone is different, but clearly i did not know that i will be taking pain meds for up to 2 months after surgery.
i was really under the impression i will be on the beach with my children after 2 weeks (for about 4 hours-ONLY).
