I am HURTING!! I had a "minor" back surgery on friday.It consisted of removing a disk up around my hairline...they removed the disc inserted a piece of bone and held it in place with a "small" titanium plate and 4 screws. I have been doing ok,except for right now.IT HURTS SO DAMN MUCH.I've taken all the med I'm supposed to...it hasn't worked yet.I'm not allowed to drive or I might just take myself to the er.

Somebody make me smile,huh?Thanks in advance

Have you tried to ice it a little bit? I wish I could make you smile or something but I know what it's like to be in horrible pain. I also don't think that is "minor" surgery. I had my entire foot reconstructed with metal and they definitely didn't classify that as minor. Back surgery seems so much worse! Take care of yourself, okay? Hope you feel better mama. If it continues, please call your doctor!

I probably will be going back to the doc, tomorrow.It just starts to hurt and if you can't "control" it,the pain just keeps getting worse. Sitting here knowing I should try to go to bed,but I can't move my head....after a while it hurts to be lieing down in 1 position.
