I am going to have mis tlif surgery March 1st. I have severe SPONDYLOSIS, and degeneration, also spinal stenosis and after 4 years of trying several ECI's and Pt, and all other reasonable and crazy treatments nothing was helping and it got worse really fast over the last year. I am nervous about pain management. I am currently taking Norco 15mg 3x a day as well as gabapentin 1800mg daily. I was curious if the oral pain meds would work well after the surgery since I take the two medicines now with not much if any relief. Any help with recovery and what to expect, am I the only person who is a nervous wreck over this ect...would be great. I am 47, run my own business and this is really scary to me.
