I had a PLIF on 7/2/2009 of S1 thru L3... now they pain is all sporadic and weird. Shooting pain in the right bottock area, right calf pain like you would not believe and groin pain.... PLUS, the pain in my back is worse!
Though, I am FINALLY not sleeping in a recliner, but I had to buy a really expensive orthopedic mattress and now after taking the pain meds, my vision blurs out, so this is loads of fun to type...
They are also telling me that they are tapering the Lortabs already.... I cannot function without them. I am in so much pain all the time, it brings me to tears.
Any help or questions that I can ask my Dr. would be great.
Anyone, please help. I am crying all the time and just lost my job a week after FMLA ran out, so I am a mess here...
Any help, I would love to hear it.
Currently. I am on Lortab 7.5, Valium, Deximathezone (short series), Gabapentin.
