    sorry for what you're going through!  I would agree that you need to check in with your neurosurgeon on your surgical site and other pains.  Your GP may be able to help you get some relief prescription-wise.  Don't know where you're from or how your medical system works, but your primary care provider or general practitioner is usually where you should start to get results the fastest.  Getting pain relief so you can at least sleep at night will go a long way to helping recovery.  All the best to you!
