Hi Russ: I read your article and can understand your eagerness to be out of pain but at 6 days, I think the rehab will be your answer to get out of pain. Once you build up your muscles, some of the pain will leave. Some people on this site are fine at a few days but still have pain and you must go to rehab. I was very thin also, and my main pain at 6 days was laying on my bottom. It was constant and when I finally went home at 2 weeks, they gave me vioxx and that helped. I am now on vicodin and celebrex. If I go off the celebrex I get the pain back. They say (my Dr.) that you will have pain off and on for 6 months. I am one of the unlucky ones with a lot of pain. I found some of my questions answered by reading all the articles on this site. There are some very helpful people out there. Don't worry, I truly believe your pain will be gone soon, if you do your therapy. Good luck.
