Chickie, I'm 5 1/2 weeks post op from a 2 level spinal fusion, L4-S1. When I came off the morphine pump in the hospital we switched to Vicodin. It's worked for me. It's not perfect, it doesn't completely eliminate all pain, but I don't expect all pain to be eliminated at this point in my recovery, and it will probably be easier to get off Vicodin then some of the other narcotic pain killers.
