I'm 3 weeks post op from my two level fusion and one level ADR, been feeling great and ready to return tomorrow.
On Friday night I took my last oxycontin and oxynorm and felt fine Saturday.
I had a single glass of wine yesterday evening too feeling pleased with my progress.
I had the WORST nights sleep ever!! Tossing and turning, nerve pain all down my left leg, my belly was aching and making noises and I was sweating like crazy.
I didn't do anything to exert myself yesterday, so other than stopping my meds I cannot work out why I am now ten steps back again
I feel like taking the meds again but nervous because 1) I've had a glass of wine and 2) perhaps this is withdrawal?
P.s I'm going back to work tomorrow and cannot handle another night like that!!
