When does the pain from surgery end? I'm almost a month post op and the pain is STILL intolerable sometimes. I'm still using the oxycodone granted only at night to get to sleep. The pain gets worse at night and I can't sleep.

    I had foot surgery six months ago. Still have difficulty walking without pain and limp. Mine is a failed fusion so, re-do is in my future followed by six months healing. When I asked the doc if it would be more painful for me as I have fibro? He jumped up and waved his hands and admitted “YES”, “ of course!” So be kind to yourself while you heal. Some of us just take a little longer than expected.

      I'm sorry you're going through something similar and you're so strong living with fibro. I'm trying my best to be kind to myself but admittedly I am way too hard on myself too often. I'll try and get better at that and just take a step back and relax. Enjoy my time off and such.

      that's good to know! I asked and the healing is pretty different and a bit longer. But they said by 12 weeks I should be a bit better compared to now
