Hey Guys... update for you

Well I have some good news...

Since last Thursday I have taken a total of five percocet...

1- Thusday I had minimal pain.
2- Friday was rough but I blame that on two hours of sleep on Thursday and having to work from 8 am to 2:30 am. The lack of sleep was due to hooking up with my ex (not the last ex but an ex from a year ago... what can I say? the ladies don't forget that I am the best!)
3- Saturday was a lot better than Friday.
4- Sunday was great. almost no pain at all.
5- Monday. This was an interesting day because I forgot about my back problem for the better part of the day. It wasn't until the night time that things started bothering me a little.

I am taking 50mg of Elavil nightly for the last three weeks. Doc says it helps with pain.

For those that don't know I had a fusion at L4/5 back in April.

Hopefully this gives some hope to you guys. I am almost 7 months post op and just starting to feel good.

As a side note I still here cracking in my low back but it has decreased.

Hi there. Should I say Bravo? I am having a L5-S1 PLIF on Nov. 8th., and am really getting nervous. Glad to hear that you are having such good success.
It gives me hope. kdk819

[COLOR="DarkOrchid"]Hey Bravo,
GREAT news!!!I'm so glad to hear good news today. I do hope your success continues. Elavil?? What is the intended use for it? Keep up the great, almost pain free recovery.

Good Luck & God Bless

Re: Hey Guys... update for you

kdk819, good luck and don't be nervous. I have to say that it feel like my surgery was yesterday. The time seems to go by slow while you are recovering but it really goes fast.

hi mamakitkat, how have you been? I've been on the relationship board complaining about my ex and have not kept up with you guys. Elavil is used for depression but the doctors figured out that it really helps with pain. I'm not sure if that is what is helping me but I am doing a hell of a lot better. I also tend to have a positive outlook these days.

Re: Hey Guys... update for you

Hi,
Thanks for the info, I am not well, if you check out my dr. visit update you will see why. I am looking for pain relief methods I haven't used yet.

I'm so glad your doing better, attitude is 50% of your battle, good thing you have a better one now.

Keep up the good job improving your recovery.

Carol
