I've had 2 epidurals in my lumber area, one 4 mos after surgery which kept me in bed for 3 days while I continued on half a dozen pain killers including morphine, another a month later which kept me in bed for 5 days, but allowed me to stop all drugs for about a week and a half.
The pain mgm't Dr suggested another, and suggested a Tens machine but I declined both as I could not stand the pain from either.
Eleven months after surgery I went cold turkey, and have not taken any drugs since. The pain did not stop, but I stopped crying about a month ago. I am on the road to recovery.
