Its been about 6 weeks after my anterior/posterior spinal fusion of the L4,L5 S1 and I just was thinking is it normal for me to be still in this much pain. I take Oxycodone 30mg 4x dialy for the breakthrough pain I take Hydromorphone 6mg when needed. when I was in the hospital though after the surgery I was so much in pain,anxiety kicked in I really thought i was in hell!!! Pain scale? U could hear me 2 floors down u know screaming! It was just unbelievable if you wernt there.I asked my Primary,orthppedic surgeon, neurologist what might of happened ,and no one has a clue. Im so afraid to have another surgery which is a possibility. I Had my 6 week checkup x-rays showed no bone growth yet ortho surgeon siad its to early still to worry about that yet. The hardware in the middle of my back hurts so bad still is all these things normal??. or if you ever heard of a reaction like i wrote about please shout it out im listening??lol.
degenerative disk disease,spondythesis or how ever u spell that one??,stenosis.
