Got home this afternoon from my second fusion. Had it done on Tuesday. This one is most definately an improvement over the last, 7 year's ago. I've already been up more, eaten more, felt better than I did 3 weeks into the last one.

It hasn't been a walk in the park but bearable. Started to feel a little nauseous today for the first time, took half a phenegran and watched a little tv in an odd laying postion. Going back to the bed now. Will post more later.


  • Glad you're doing ok. That's good news! Keep us posted.
  • Hi

    Take it slow for awhile.

  • advertisement
  • So glad it went well and improvements have been made. I hope you take it easy and keep up the resting for a little while.

  • Thanks all...how long should I wear these stockings? My doc or nurse didn't say anything.

    The strange thing is you can watch all the BLT's yo want, but you have to do a little of that so judging how much is the issue.

    I know I did specicially ask the doc from the hospital bed if reaching and stretching around to get a coke or whatever from the table was bad and he said no, I could do that.

    Part of me says it's the SUDDEN and UNCONTROLLED BLT's they want us to watch the the most. His little sheet also says "if it hurts, stop"...well, I'd never get back in bed them.

    Does this RX dosage seem adequate to everyone? And No, I'm not switching on the advise of other's here, I'm just new to this ms contin thing.

    I am taking 1 -30 long lasting twice a day and then 1 - 15 mg one every 4-6 hours as needed. Even after an hour, pain is no better. Also just took a lyrica and zanaflex. Last night I was so frustrated because I got up about 8 times to pee, and it was only tonight when I had my daughter getting my normal meds did I realize they gave me my blood pressure bill last night. Oh yeah, good one, it's got a dierutic (sp?) in it, so I'm holding off til AM which is when I usually take it.
