Good afternoon all, My name is Karen and I am from Maryland. I am post op 7 weeks and am still in severe pain. I go for X-rays and doctor visit this coming Friday. I am now on roxycodone, tramadol andmethocarbamol for spasms. I try to wait the suggested 6 hours in between doses but it is nearly impossible. I have never experienced pain as this in my life. I was a healthy 54 year old prior to this surgery. My emotions are all over the map with tears flowing quite often. I had recent blood work which found my liver enzymes high from all the acetemetaphyne (not sure of spelling). This is the hardest most painful situation I have ever been in. When should all the madness stop?
It is normal to have flares of pain post op. What kind of surgery did you have? Are you using ice or heat to help ease the inflammation and pain. I am not sure what tylenol you are talking about, because the medications you listed do not contain tylenol, unless you are taking it in addition to the current medications.
