Two weeks exactly since my TLIF and yesterday I got my staples out and talked to the doctor about the best way to begin seperating out my pain meds. AND then of course today I am having a horrible day. Just wanted to complain to those of you that understand. So I was taking oxy 15 every 6 hours and valium when needed in between to bridge or if I was having spasms. Dr. suggested if I am feeling a bit better to stretch to 8 hours. I made it because I fell asleep after taking a valium at hour 5. Don't get me wrong I don't have to stretch it out but was really thinking I was feeling better and could do it. Disappointed to say the least. It seemed my shower and about 10 extra minutes of standing today put me over the edge. I am sick of people taking care of me :-(
Thanks for listening.
