I had a two level fusion following a car accident, L2-L4. Also 1st metatarsal fusion in my left foot. How do I talk to two different surgeons in different practices about my pain, I want to be open and honest but with today's opiod epidemic I don't know how to go about pain management. It has been 6 weeks since spine surgery and almost a month since my foot. I am 20 y/o male, 145 lbs, used to be very active; a soccer player and cross country runner. My pain ranges from 5-8 depending on the day and I'm beginning to worry my back will hurt forever. I have had one day since back surgery where I felt pain under a 5...any advice will be greatly appreciated!
