I had surgery Aug 21st which ended up being decompression and spinal fusion L4L5 with instrumentation. Breezed through first 2 days but it has been getting tougher since. Came home Monday. Seeing my GP this morning.
Pain has at times been unmanageable and I have taken more dilaudid than I needed at hospital. Since the middle of last night I have been having muscle spasms of the upper left side of my back. Movement and breathing triggers them so I can't take a deep breath. Is this common? Has anything worked for anyone?
