i have been browsing these forums for ad finally decided i need to post.
I am 4 weeks post op of PLIF of L4-L5-S1 and i think i am healing and makg progress slowly. I am on norco(325mg)every 6 hours and 2 days ago stopped soma.
my trouble is i am soooooooooooo emotional. i cry all the time. i think i am frustrated, as i am ready to be well, but are the pills helping with all the crying.
Also since i have stopped the soma i am getting nerve pain again which was completely gone after surgery. i am getting the nerve pain down to my ankle. it started yesterday. why start 4 weeks post op?
this has not helped with the crying at all, in fact now i feel like crying more.
is this normal?
