That first week is a tough one. I am 3 weeks post op and starting to feel almost normal. Anyway my first weekend how I had mucsle spasms real bad. So the doctor called in some ativan and baclofen and it really helped. I mean I couldn't even get up to go to bathroom but the meds settled it down in about an hour. I hope the vicodin works for you it makes me nauseous and hyper. Good Luck sounds like you are about normat for this stage of recovery.
