    Is anyone else still in pain and tired?

    Hey Guys!
    Its been exactly 5 months since I had my back fused from T-10 to S5 so pretty much my whole lower half to my sacrum. I am still taking a percocet in the morning because it hurts to move and it helps so I can go to work. And I need one at night to sleep. It hurts to sleep. Its not the same pain as before surgery. That felt like a compression. Its like the metal hurts. I have two boys 8 and 12 and I am working 4 days a week but find myself warn out always. I am out of most pain when I am in bed so I spend a lot of time on my bed. I am a little worried and wondering where you guys were at 5 months and if this is normal.
