How much pain is normal after spondy surgery?
I am a 15 year old girl and I had a spine fusion with hardware almost 2 years ago due to grade 3 spondylolisthesis. I don't remember much about it because I was only in 7th grade so I mostly just let my parents decide everything because my dad is a doctor. I do remember that the pain/tingling/numbness in my legs had become severe and it had become quite a task to stand for more than 5 minutes so surgery was the only option. I also had a surgery close to a year later because of severe tendenitus in my legs probably caused by the spondy and I have scoliosis if that makes any difference. Anyways I was wondering how much pain is normal 2 years after my surgery? For the past couple weeks I've been trying to see how often I have back pain and it is mild but it is everyday and on somedays it hurts quite a bit from everyday activities like sweeping or doing laundry. Should I ask my doctor for anti-inflamitory pills or pain killers? Is it bad that I still have pain?
