Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board


Hi Dave,
Welcome to a place where we all understand what you are going though. DOn't be afraid to ask EVERY question. I had to write mine down a few days before the appointment because I would get nervous in the doctors office and forget things. If you aren't comfortable with his treatment plan can you get one more opinion? I can't see you returning to the same kind of job once you have the surgery but everyone is diffferent.
Leg pain is so awful I was taking a HUGE amount of vicodin just to function before my surgery and still take it sometimes but not like before my fusion.
Knowledge is power so read as much as you can, ask as many questions as you can and pray before you make your decision. I don't for one minute regret having the surgery but like so many others here I had to make HUGE life adjustments once I had it.
Be Blessed,
Momzworkin :)

Momzworkin:Thank you for taking the time to help. I have started to wright my questions in a book so I don't forget my questions. I do feel good about the Dr. and treatment, just not sure about the end result. where my life will go from here. It sounds like I'll have to make changes. Change is good right!
