One month out from spinal fusion L4-S1
hi, I'm wondering what is normal. Am I ok? Didn't expect such intense, debilitating pain. I still need Percocet. Titrated down to one every eight hours. But, can barely walk. Intense pain when I stand up. Can't sit for very long. My doctor said its a "marathon " not a "race", but I don't know what that means regarding pain expectations. Getting ready to request refill for pain meds. Should I just suck it up?
