Hi all. I am new here and just wanted to see what it is all about and maybe get some advice now and then. In Dec 09 I had cervical fusion from c/3 - 3/7. My doc used the Peek Prevail disk and off label BMP. I wear a bone growth stimulator 4 hours a day every day. I am currently taking up to 6 Percocet 10/325 and up to 3 valium every day. Although I usually only take 3-4 Percocet and no valium unless it gets real bad.
One question I have right now is if anyone else has noticed that they get REAL sleepy if they DON'T take their med. I noticed the last couple of weeks that if I skip a dose of Percocet I get so sleepy that you couldn't pay me to stay awake. I find this to be weird and figured it should be the other way around, that I would get sleep when I took it not when I DIDN'T take it. Has anyone else ever had this or heard about it?
