Surgery was done with no problems. I had a spinal with pro-phenol. Limited pain, just a dull ache. After all feeling came back, I kept waiting for the really bad pain. I was given a regiment of pain killer, but no major pain. At bedtime I was given dilauda just to circumvent any nighttime pain. I didn’t sleep well, just couldn’t get comfortable. Still no major pain. I walked after surgery and came home yesterday. Slept all night without pain meds. Up and walking with walker, resting, elevating leg, icing , and taking scheduled hydrocodone. I have absolutely been amazed at the level of pain I’ve had. I start PT Monday.
