Im 21 years old and have had severe chronic back pain for 6-7 years. Two years ago i was told my spine never fused at the bottom, causing it to slip forward a 1/4 inch and pinch nerves, degenerate two discs, and cause a cyst as well. My surgeon fused the bottom vertebrae, fixed my discs, removed the cyst, and placed screws to stabilize.
Its been almost two weeks since surgery and i had to get refills from a doctor closer to me, and he told me i should not be in much pain anymore. He told me i should be needing barely any meds anymore but it still very much hurts if i don’t take them every three hours. He said it in a condescending way and not a concerned way so i’m just confused and worried.
