I am now 5 months post op, I certainly have had my ups and more downs in my recovery, from my fusion L5s1. I have read a lot on this site that a lot of people take muscle relaxants. My doctor put me on muscle relaxants, 3 days ago, for my lingering nerve pain, I can't believe the difference they have made.today I felt a so great, I Had hardly any pain oh it was wonderful. I only wish I was put on these meds months ago, I will continue to take them in my recovery.... and hope they continue to help me as I am so over this awful nerve pain, any one else, find they help with pain........
