I had L5, S1 surgery ( Fusion) done in February, 2014 and its been 3 months and 2 weeks and I am still suffering from substantial pain. If I don't take my meds three times a day,I am unable to move around the house. I cant even go out and enjoy my family parties or have good time with my friends in city.
Sometimes I feel more pain what I had before surgery but thanks to my meds that keeps my pain under control without them I dont think so I can function.
I have been to my surgeon assistant twice after my surgery and he said the nerves around my disc which I haven't used earlier are now being used and that generates the pain but I told him that I am having a same pain which I had before at the exact same location. He kept saying to me that there is inflammation around the disc and nerves that is causing pain.
Its been almost four months after my back surgery and I havent experience 10% improvement. Its a big let down for me. I cant live like a normal human and I am in agony all the time.
Can anyone advise me feed back.....
