Untreated post-operative pain. I have been a chronic pain patient for 4 years.

I took myself off of all medications in july, 2016 because i knew id need surgery on my spine. I had an acdf at level c6-7 and a laminectomy at level c5-6. I had surgery on jan.12, so i am 10 days post-op and i habe no pain meds. The surgeon sent me home with hydrocodone 5/325.

Didnt come close to helping. The next script was hydrocodone 10/325. This helped until my tolerance returned. My doc gave me 60 pills and said i could take 6 a day, no help.

I feel i am being punished and treated unfairly.

Untreated acute pain leads to so many problems. I wish i had some recourse.
