My L5-S1 fusion was 6 1/2 weeks ago. Currently I am down to one 10/325 hydrocodone & one 400 mg tylenol a day. I split them and take one half of each every 12 hours, In the morning and night. Hope to be off hydrocodones in a week.
Going through some nausea, upset stomach, and adjustment to the discomfort. Not fun at all. I feel like garbage For the discomfort, the hydrocodone seems to work much faster than tylenol. Tylenol doesn't work as fast as hydrocodone.
I see why you said drink tons of water. Already feeling a bit better.
