Hi, I'm new here but not new to pain or surgery! I had a 2 level (L4-S1) fusion in 2008 and in two weeks going in for then to fix first fusion screws that are floating around as well as fuse L3-L4. I am a recovering prescription addict from the first surgery and am very aware of what I am in for. I'm scared to death!! My questions are how have those of you who have been fused more than once doing? And What is the shortest time you have had to take the Narcs after surgery? (Right now I am on Lyrica and Cymbalta) Had to stop the Aleve which I didn't realize how much it helped till is was gone!
Any and all help would be appreciated.
Soft hugs and pain free prayers!
