I writing on behalf of my partner who has had a decompression operation a couple of days ago.. I am concerned because he is in significant pain. I pressume this is normal.????Anyone know when the pain will subside?? ~X(


  • :) hi and welcome to the forum! we are here to offer you support and answer what questions we can. your partner is so fortunate to have you by their side. surgery can be so stressful and help is needed after surgery! is your partner on pain meds? if not this should be corrected right away. if they are in an inordinate amount of pain and are on meds, you should contact your doctor and let him know the pain is not being covered. pain is expected after surgery, they cut into your partner's body!!! good luck and thank you for your care and concern over your partner. Jenny :)
  • The pain will get less and less as time goes on and your partner will be able to slowly decrease his/her pain meds.
    If his/her pain isnt controlled right now mention it to the doctor like lulusheart stated. Theres no reason for him/her to live in pain when they dont have to.

    Good Luck,
    Christina :)

  • Al. That your partner is lucky to have you for support and that there is no reason to suffer in so much pain this day and age. Pain is expected after surgery but there are lots of meds that can help until he recovers. welcome to SH and please keep us posted on your partners progress.
