Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board


It's been a really long time since i have posted on the boards. Ever since the spring i have been going from Doctor to Doctor to figure out whether to have ADR or a fusion. I have since been scheduled to have minimally invasive fusion on my two bad discs (L4-5 and L5/S1) :dizzy: I am scheduled for surgery on 7 September.

But that's not my dilema today i recently went on vacation and while I was away I experienced a type of pain that I never felt before..up unitl this pain i have felt really bad back pain and as leg pain and pain that shoots around my waist. But this particular type of pain was different in the fact that it felt as if my whole lower back were one big muscle that just completely tensed sort of when one pulls a leg muscle. This pain lasted for about 48 hours and many vicodin later i felt much better and was able to enjoy the rest of my vacation. however since returning from vacation I have continued to have this new type of pain and I don't know what the hell it is or whats causing it. Has anyone out there experience something similar to this ?

I am frustrated and tired and dont want to be in pain no more :(

Thanks
Anne
