I still am experiencing pretty severe right leg pain one month after surgery, I had a 5 lvl lumbar laminectomy to take pressure off nerve roots.
My surgeon did say it would take 3 to 4 months to see if my leg pain will go away entirely. Now I have more severe pain in my lower back than I did before surgery as well. At least there has been no infections and the site is healing.
My surgeon gave me 30 mg morphine and 15 mg oxycodone. Those are gone now and he will not refill. My PcP has me on 15 mg morphine and 7.5 mg oxycodone/tylenol for my chronic pain in both my arms and my right leg. This also helps my Fibromyalgia when it flare bad.
