Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone out there has experienced ankle pain?
I am almost 5 weeks post-op of L5/S1 fusion and my legs and ankles have a burning deep achy feeling everyday. I usually make it till about 1:00 pm every day and then I give in and take 2 percocet. That usually helps and I try not to take any more the rest of the day. I see my doc in 2 weeks. Just wondering if anyone else out there has had this problem and did it go away in time. I know its still early in the game and its probably nerve pain. I not a very patient person. I am going stir crazy but I really don't feel like going anywhere...............Debbie
Hi guys, Thanks for all the replies. This ankle and leg pain s--- 's, pardon my french! I'm trying something new today and just taking 1 percocet every five hours instead of 2 in the afternoon when it gets really bad. It feels like someone has a hot iron at the bottom fo my spine and the pain radiates down my legs to my ankles and feet. Hey Jen, I cry everytime I go to the doc. He probably thinks I'm a blubbering idiot. If he was mean I'd be okay but when he talks nice to me the faucets turn on. Deb53, I don't know if your on an antidepressant or not but I've ben on celexa for many years and I woud probably be in the loony bin about now if I weren't. It's kind of scary to know you still have so much pain like mine when you are so far post-op. Oh well IT COULD BE WORSE , so they say.....................Debbie
