Hello, I have been taking vicodin (approximatly 8 per day)for a year and 5 months for chronic low back pain. I had 360 fusion on March 24th and was then put on percocet. I only took the perc's for 3 weeks. I am back on the vicodin and 6 weeks post op. I realize that I will still have pain from the surgery for a while, however I am wondering if anyone can give me a heads up on what to expect when I start tapering off of the vicodin.
