A year and half more of pain?

I posted a while back about recurring and new pain. It has gotten worse day by day so I finally called my doctor today. It turns out that I've probably overworked myself and irritated the nerves, which I will admit is highly likely as I was feeling great a few weeks ago. She told me that for the next year and half I will have on and off episodes of this type of pain as the nerves heal. Apparently they are the slowest healing part of the body. Argh....a year and half more of this??? Of course, if the pain gets worse/unbearable they will check it out, but in the meantime I guess its ultram and tylenol.

    Yes, recovery is about 13 to 18 mo.post surgery. for a 360 I'm sure you'll be in that ball park. So take it easy go slow and don't irritate anything. You've had one of the hardest surgries to recover from.
    Good luck, Jim
