Depression after lumbar spinal fusion
After 3 years of debilitating pain due to DDD had fusion on 16th May 2012. Doing very well and came off oxynorm by day 7 and OxyContin by day 10. Felt great and was lookIng forward to future however, i Started to come off dihydrocodeine 30 mg 3 days ago and was fine, no pain and had a few drinks yesterday and done some things I should not have done like bending In the shower etc.... Had to take oxymoron and felt very depressed, to the point of contemplating suicide last night with all the stashed OxyContin etc... Had to take dihydrocodeine and oxymoron again today and still feeling depressed, crying a lot etc, and even worse had a few puffs of cigs..... Am I feeling like this because of the alcohol, coming off the drugs too quick, or just the major op that I've had?..
