It is now 2 1/2 months since my surgery. After 4 weeks I was pain-free. The seventh week I developed severe pains and cramping. Certain sitting positions resulted in searing pain. I couldn't sleep for more than 1 hour, at a time, or the muscles would draw up and convulse. I am taking muscel relaxers and anti-inflammatories and some pain medication, but cannot stay at work all day. My doctor says many of his 50-year old patients have these complaints, as they tend to overdo when progress is so swift. From what I can tell of your letters, most of you continue pain-free after the four weeks. Have any of you around my age (50) experienced the type of problems I describe?? I would very much appreciate receiving e-mails on the subject. My address is timlynne@home.com thanks very much
