I had my second fusion on the 30th of August. I was released 4 days ago from the hospital. My first one was at L4-L5. My second was came from cauda equina caused by the pedicle screw at L4 breaking and pushing up into L3. I have been taking norco 10mgs every 4 hours for the pain. It is doing absolutely nothing. When I was discharged I was given the number to call my doctor to make follow up appt and to call for any problems. Well, the number DIDN"T WORK!!!! I just now finally today did some searching and it took me an hr to find his real number. I called hysterical crying and begging for something stronger for this pain. I only took pain meds in the past when it was so bad I could not function, Now so much norco has gone into me, I can't even get relief from it. I need percocet, oxy, dilaudid pills, something to help me and they will not give me anything stronger than Norco!I dont know what to do. I am literally curled up in the fetal position in tears because it feels like my legs are on fire. I have been doing everything right, i dont understand why today it hurts this bad. Please help me your advice is golden to me.
