My son had a back fusion on Aug 12 09, Sl, L1, he is still having considerable pain. My question is, since he has been on Vicoden for about 3 yrs, till we could get anyone to operate, he is only 22 and had severe spondololythisis. I am not sure if he is drug seeking or really needs the vicodin. The drs all act as if he shouldn't be having any pain, which I don't believe. He can hardly sleep or sit. I just need some levels to deal with so when I take him back to neurosurgeon on the 6th, I will know what to fight for.
Good news, he is walking so well, his left leg, which before he had to limp, is now perfect. Thank you for any replies on this subject. Smiles, diamondlil
