I had my fusion surgery 6/26/08 and I still am hurting. First thing in the morning and in the evenings are terrible. I wear a brace all day. I've noticed that I hurt more when I lay down on my bed (on my back). I would have thought I'd be feeling "good" by now. I don't go back to my surgeon until 10/20. Is it normal to still be like this? Thanks ahead of time for your comments.
