I have lots of muscle pain (it is much worse than the pain I was experiencing pre-surgery and has crippled my life in the last weeks). I'm on a muscle relaxer, prescription strength anti-inflammatory, and Flexor patches for the affected area, but nothing seems to work. I had surgery 3.5 months ago (laminectomy/facetectomy at L5-S1 level for nerve decompression) and have been doing PT since a week after surgery but am still in disabling pain. I'm going back to the pain doctor tomorrow again but I am looking for ideas on what to ask for.
My MRIs showed surgery was a success so I don't think it was a botched surgery. Thanks in advance for the advice.
