I had lower back surgery on 6-9-11. I sleep all the time now. at first i couldn't sleep at all i was awake at 1:30 everynight. i had a ruptured disk. i was having pain in my left leg b4 surgery now i am having pain in my right hip that sometimes goes down my leg. Is this normal? it just started a couple of weeks ago. i am also very bored and started chain smoking. i know it is horrible for the haling process but can't quit. i dont know what to do.
