I'm finally home after my ALIF L5/S1 last Monday. Spent 7 days in hospital, 3 1/2 hour drive home was a trial but we made it.
It was great to see my beautiful girls and husband again.
The pain's bearable and it was no-where near as bad as I feared it would be.
I do have pretty bad pain down my right leg/buttock but suspect it's sacro-iliac pain or muscular. We'll see.
I've been on oxycontin 60mg twice a day for over 2 years and I did/still do struggle to get adequate pain relief cause i'm so tolerant to the usual meds. Doesn't seem to matter how many times I explain it, people still seem to think that the usual endone and panadol should be sufficient for someone like me.
Anyway that's probably been my main gripe to what has otherwise been a trouble free recovery so far.
All those well wishes and prayers from you'all did me wonders, thanks.
