Had bulging disc. Tramadol worked. Further?

I had bulging disc for 5 years and tramadol worked perfectly. When I started to need tramadol and hydrocodone together it was time to get fused which stabilized my spine . I was fused on 10/11 and still have enact pain. I m told its muscles.tramadol doesnt work anymore and I need 8 pills of hydrocodone per day. They gave me a butrans patch 10# doesnt work so I cut a 10in half still no relief tried adding a full 10 total of 20. Legs burned so bad I took a miracle 5/325which helped and ripped off one of. The 10s.scared,hydrocodoneonly seems to work an sometimes I need to take 2.5 pills to get out of bed and stand.
