48 y/o female. L5-S1 lumbar fusion, and repair of a Pars Defect. Surgery was on 2/1/16. Two days ago I broke down crying. I stopped taking the pain meds 4 days ago. I normally work M-F, 8-5. I'm guessing I'm emotional because I have been home for 23 days! Not working, just sitting watching tv, playing on line games and doing crossword puzzles. I've had enough of it. My pain is minimal. I'm bored. Calling the doc tomorrow to see if I can drive now at least. Is this normal to just break down and cry? ?? My husband is very supportive and thinks I should call the doctor and advise him of my emotional state.
