Pain meds dosage had increased as well as adding limbrell and lyrica two weeks ago still no relief I'm in bed with legs up on ice all day and really dose up he any so i can sleep through the night.

I had spinal fusion October 2012 - was told take 6 months before BLT - April now just starting physio - I also had lot of pain first 2/3 months after op legs and buttocks which pain killers did nothing to abate - found small massage ball helped - taking point where pain really bad and massaging that small area to break down the 'knots' in the muscle - does hurt - but felt breaking it down and getting blood to pain spot helped - Also used alternate hot and cold pads - thought heat pads better as dilates vessels - Does get better and as you progress the speed of improvement increases Good Luck
