I have a question, my orthopedic surgeon is recommending a decompression with fusion at L4 and L5. I am currently taking Percocet 10 but he said that taking pain meds is not helping it. But i think it does help with the pain and he wouldn't prescribe me any pain meds for the pain, he said to take aspirin or ibuprofen for the pain. I explained to him that they don't help the pain at all. I would like to know if this Dr is correct or if he just doesn't want to give me pain meds. Thanks and I hope to get some kind of feedback on this.
