I am 9 days post op from my L3-L5 fusion, and I am doing better than most my docs patients, he says anyways. I am not in terrible pain, but I am not at all flexible, and my hips are really starting to hurt from lying on my side. I CAN'T lay on my back...it hurts badly.
Anyways, onto my question...My doc put me on Norco 10's that are doing no good. not only that, I don't get nauseous, loopy or anything. It's like they are sugar pills. He told me I could become immune but I haven't taken THAT many of them. Maybe 1-125 in my whole life. He gave me Loritab instead but I think that is essentially the same medicine. Has anyone else experienced this? What are your suggestions? I don't need a ton of pain relief but a little would help.
