My husband had 360 fusion on 11/15 and is still in the horrific pain. Prescribed meds do not seem to lower ti below 8 (his alternates between 15mg and 30 mg of morpine every 2 hours plus zanaflex every 6 hours). Also, he caught a stomach bug and was vomiting yesterday.
My questions are
1. Can vomiting permanently damage something after fusion requiring immediate surgery, etc?
2. Has anyone experienced unrelenting pain post recover?
3. If yes re:pain, did you got to ER? His pain management doc is closed this weekend and the hospital and surgeon said to get in touch with pain management doctor.
