I had L4 through S1 fusion (front and back) 10 days ago. Have developed some really weird side effects from the Tramadol (one of the pain meds prescribed) causes severe muscle jerks and spasms, one last night really wretched my back and I am not supposed to move that portion for three months.
Does anyone know of another type pain medication that can be used? I am currenltly on neurontin and oxycodone.
Plan to call the doctors answering service shortly Nd appreciate any help on this.
