How long on average can I expect to have pain? I still need my narcotic pain medicine every 4 hours. I never knew how painful this surgery would be. I am more active then I was 3 weeks ago but still need to lay down a lot. About 2 weeks father surgery noticed tender pain on left side. When I lay on my back I can feel the hardware on left side and the pain shoots down my whole left side, I am sure it's nerve pain. Anyone with experience with this surgery any input will really help me. Thanks in advance.Welcome to Spine-Health
