I have a bunch of questions for those who have had PLIF surgery or any type of back surgery. I had my L4/L5 L5/S1 PLIF on October 14th 2009. I am still in pain, but not the type of pain that I had before the surgery. I am almost 100% sure that I have fibromyalgia also, but that's another subject. Right now I am trying to find out about others and their symptoms after surgery. My boyfriend seems to think that I can just do anything. I am so sick of fighting with him about this. I don't feel normal, I am in pain 24 hours a day, I am exhausted to to the bone, I have no appetite, I itch all over, I can't sleep at night, I finally pooped the other day thanks to this stuff called magnesium citrate, I still use a cane, its only been 2 months, am I on track?
1) How long till you can stop the no BLT?
2) Anyone else feeling different pain?
3) Anyone else tired?
4) Anyone here have fibromyalgia?
