Well...I had surgery on Tuesday 4/29/08. I was sent home on Wednesday 4/30/08. I slept the majority of the time. The Doctor came in and told me that while I was on the operating table, he had to give me 3 times the normal amount of anesthesia due to being on the Percocet for as long as I have. Well...now I am not only on the Percocet 2 pills every 4 hours but am still taking the Neurotin 400 mg 4 times a day, Valium 3 times a day, Prednesone 4 times a day and also taking an antibiotic!! I can't believe the amount of pain that I am in at this time. I have had all kinds of pressure and pain and right now am just hoping that I will get thru this and find relief. I am so tired of taking pills and trying to act "normal". Please let me know if anyone else has had this problem and if there will ever be any type of relief in my near future!! Oh...they didn't have to put a cage around the disc...they stapled it instead...not sure I understand how that one works but they think it will be just fine.....
