I am a little over two weeks post op on my Laminectomy L-4 to S-1. I have pain in my right leg from but to foot (only left leg was a problem before surgery). Left leg was much better after surgery but it's making a come back as well.
I have severe PTSD and Anxiety disorder which have really started in and getting the better of me. I started freaking out telling myself the pain pill are making everything worse and I should quit taking them right away. I did try to back them down today but of course the pain has shout up.
I guess I am panicing in someways, I went through many feelings from I need to be in a hospital for the pain to I need to be in a hospital for my brain. I llok and feel like a mess now and I am paralyized with not being able to change anything due to my anxiety.
I have been suicidal before with my PTSD, but don't worry I'm not there, at least not yet. I'm not even sure why I am bothering you all with this stuff, this is not the kind of thing you are used to dealing with, but I thought I'g try anyhow, as I said I am freaking out. When I think of my options none of them look or sound good to me at this point.
Sorry for the intrustion of my craziness. It all just hurts a lot. Well thanks for listening and I hope and pray your situation is going better then mine is right now.
