I had my fusion on Dec 22 and have went through different "phases" of pain but this "phase" is extreme. The last 3 days, whenever I move at all, I get an intense bone type pain in the lower back which corrualates with my hardware. It feels as though I am being stabbed in the spine, very concentrated pain. I am hoping this is something that passes as it heals but the pain is so intense that the meds do not even touch it, I am on Oxycodone 20mg ER & oxy 5/325mg for breakthru.
I am sure what I am feeling are the screws in my spine, but does this pain diminish as it heals? I am very early post op & dont want to get to too worried & whiney about odd pains but I would like to know if others have experienced the same type of pain.
