Postop pain : Find out why you're hurting with a thorough workup by a spine surgeon comfortable dealing with complex problems. If a treatable cause is not identified, consider a pain stimulator. Pain pump as a next line option. I relegated to chronic narcotics, talk to your pharmacist about alternatives on your insurance. Methadone is generally cheap.
