Hello all. I am almost at my 5 week point post op. I see my surgeon a week from tomorrow for my first set of x rays. My question is, has anyone had trouble staying asleep? I can't sleep for more than 1.5-2 hours at the most at a time. I don't feel like it is pain that is waking me up. I have been queening off of my strong narcotics lately but can't seem to go without the muscle relaxers yet. I have read and heard that the muscle relaxers are one of the last things to let go of. I am on Valium that I do take before bed and don't have any trouble falling asleep with 10-20 minutes. I just can't stay asleep. I feel as though I am rambling and I am sorry for that.
I do want to say that I "trolled" this site many times before and after surgery and have to say there are some of the kindest people on here that truly seem concerned about others. It's nice to see that in the world we love in.
