I am 28daya, almost a month post op. he cut all of my pain medicine in half last week. And he told me to take motrin for in the middle of the night. I had a spinal fusion L1-L2 with bone graft. It was an XLIF, but he went in my side and back. I still wake up in so much pain every night in the middle of the night. is there anyone else out there in the same position as I?taking motrin seems to go against everything that the internet says.did he tells me it's just fine to take it.I had retrolisthesis of L1-L2. at 3 weeks like I said, they cut my pain medications back, which to me into a sleeping swirl of pain for two days. in my mind does seem to be a bit cruel.andwhen I call the doctors office they told me I was having withdrawals. which would have been a nice to know when we had an apt. So now I'm over that 3 days of hell.... But am in a lot more pain.... At least at night. I am starting to manage during the day..anyways I was just wondering if it was anyone else out there have been seemingly having the same experience experience.
