I had ADR and ALIF on May 11, 2009. I have been taking Vicodin 3 to 4 times a day ever since. I have recently been weening off the pills(2nd atempt) and am down to 1 a day. Im noticing pain and stiffness not only where the surgery was performed but up my whole spine. Now its not overwhelming pain and lets just say I dont have the greatest posture.I had my husband run his fingers down each of the vertebrae and some spots are more tender than others nad some days are worse than others. I did not have this before the surgery. Has anyone experienced this?
