Hello all I just joined. But need some help/guidance. I'm 10 days out from having a L4 & L5 fusion. I'm 32 and have had back trouble from around the age of 26. I was a big weightlifter. But when my back would act up I would see my old PCP & he would give me a shot pain pills & send me on my way. So I damaged to the point to where I am now, writhing in pain. I've always had a high tolerance to things and got back on pain meds a few months before surgery. I'm the hospital I was getting Percocet 10mg every 4 hrs & could have a shot of dilaluid every 2 if needed. My problem is my surgeon sent me home with 50, 7.5mg Percocets to take 1 every 6 hours. Needless to say I'm out. He told my Dad who picked me up that he wasn't going to write anything else for me. Went to my new Primary Care doc today she gave me 15, 10mg Percs bc she said she didn't want to step on my surgeon's toes. I honestly don't know what to do, I'm going to call my surgeon & tell him I need some more but seems to me that I kinda got skimped. I'm doing the walking but I'm at a solid 7/10 at rest with the medicine & maybe
a 5.5-6/10 pain wise. Any advice, thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
