I went to the surgeon yesterday, and I am just amazed....he has told me that I am fused, and am able to go back to full duty next month. I am still in pain!!! He said that I need to exercise more, and I will be much better. That is fine with me, but I just dont understand. He also told me not to even take eleve, it doesn't help the pain, it covers it up. He does not believe in ANY pain meds..........I have a appt. on monday with my pain management doctor. We need to figure out what to do. I do not feel ready at ALL to go back to lifting people like he said I can do. :T . I know that he is a surgeon, and he feels his work is done. I feel like I am not done!
I am on workmens comp, and this does not help. Does this seem normal to any of you??????????? Help!!!!
