I am just a little over 3 week’s post fusion and I feel I same way. I also have a bone simulator and I can feel it along with the screws and rods. My feet and legs are really swelled up and I still have numbness and tickling in my feet. On Oxycodone ER every 12 hours, Oxycodone every 4-6 hours and Valium every 6. I also am wondering if this is normal. Hope you get to feeling better soon.
