Hi all. My husband just had his first ever surgery last Wednesday, March 20 which was an ALIF for a slipped disc in his L5/S1. He woke up from surgery in intense pain but with the pain medication was able to improve steadily and only stayed in the hospital for 3 days/2 nights. His first two days home were OK but we are day 7 after surgery/day 5 at home and it seems like he hasn't gotten any better and quite possibly has gotten worse. He cannot do anything on his own - sit down/stand up/lay down, pick up his feet to put them on a foot stool, etc. He has found comfort long enough to sleep in our recliner with a heating pad under hos back brace but as soon as he wakes up he is in excruciating pain to the point that he is crying and screaming out in pain. He uses a walker to get around the house and is now saying his whole left side below his waist feels like it's going out on him and his arms are incredibly sore from supporting himself to walk. Is this normal? There have been countless times we've debated calling 911 because he's in such incredible pain and I can't help him. He was prescribed 10mg Percocet for 10 days, 7.5mg Percocet for the next 10 days, and 5mg Percocet for the final 10 days before his appointment with his neurosurgeon but he's only on day 5 and he's already halfway into the 7.5mg Percocets. We have called the doctor office and left voicemails for the nurse but have yet to hear back. I'm just looking for some sort of insight because we both had higher expectations for his condition going into his second week after surgery. Any information is greatly appreciated.
