I have been home a week now. Surgery went well 8.5 hours. I feel pretty good although I'm pretty much a couch potato. I have been on percocet 5/325 every 4 hours plus neurontin. Last night I had an episode of vertigo and really just being out of my head. I took some dramamine and my last dose of percocet at 11 pm.
This morning I am still dizzy took another dramamine but not a percocet. I am wondering how to best stop percocet. Without it I feel like I have an incision in my back but not awful pain.
Details of my surgery
10 screws rods etc. He did a decompression by shaving off the posterior spinal processes for the fusion he used my bone from the spinal processes, some donor bone and some infusion. So no drilling into my hip. -)
I am walking with a walker around the house probably not as much as I should. And today I am so dizzy.
Waiting for a call back from Dr. S 's team.
