360 2 level lumbar fusion and hardware removal 7 months later. Started out on Norco 10s which progressed to Methadone and finally OxyContin 80s and Oxycodone 30s for Breakthrough. Undergone Spinal Cord Stimulator testing and about to try the pain pump when I decided to get off all meds and see what my real pain is. 30 day rehab and a painful detox yeilding amazing results for me. My pain level is between a 0-2 but tolerable and managed with Iburprophen 800.
I would never have believed it if you told me. The pain was manufactured in my mind. Please be careful out there with these powerful Narcotics.
