I haven't posted in a while. Had my surgery on 10/29/09. It's been a long tough 3 weeks, (seems like a year).
I'll cut to the chase. The left side of my body feels absolutely great! My problem is my left hip. I am excruciating pain that the percocet isn't even cutting. I've been back to the surgeon twice now to get staples out. They keep telling me that I'm having nerve pain from nerves decompressing. Maybe they're right but it feels like my hip has a knife stuck in it. I've been dealing with nerve pain for 10 years and have never had anything this severe. I'd say I'm about 9 on the scale. I had 3rd degree burns and that's what I call a 10 on the scale.
I just wondered if anybody had a similar post operative experience. They are going to MRI as soon as I can get the rest of the staples out but I'm a little suspicious as I can imagine they wouldn't want to admit anything was damaged from surgery. Anyway, if anybody has an opinion or can share similar experiences, I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks a bunch,
