I'm 9 days post-op fusion surgery and hurting this morning. Am sitting here at my computer at 3:30 am because I can't find a position that relieves the pain. My thighs, butt/low back, hips and occasional pain/numbness in my shinbones feel as if I'd been kicked. Had my dose of pain med & muscle relaxer 40 minutes ago but it hasn't helped yet.
Anybody else awake and hurting at this time of the morning? It's daytime for some of you around the world.
Thanks for any encouragement or suggestions you might have to get at least somewhat comfortable.
