Back Problems board

Hi 2B, I am 6 weeks post-op from L5/S1 fusion. I do not work outside of the home but if I did I would in no way consider myself ready to go back. I am still having a great deal of nerve pain and lower back pain. The doctor just lowered my percocet from 10-325 to 5-325 twice a day and added 300mg of neurontin at bedtime. It's not going so well but I decided to tuff it out. He said I can walk on the treadmill now and I have been doing about 1/2 a mile at a time. I just don't want you to be disapointed when the 6 week mark rolls around. If you absolutely do not have to go back I would take as much time as you can get..................Debbie
