hey gassy, my exp. have been after resec. no narrowing of any kind. so kinda wierd, what you're going thru, is it bad enough for pain med's? that was one thing I remembered, after resection's, I didn't need pain med's. Now unfort. I have cd arthritis, in areas where I was injured, but they're not bad, until I go to use arms, or back, and neck. Ibrioke collar bone twice, same one, and that thing now is killing me. I can't barley lift my arm up half way, when I take med's then I can work and do 70% of what it was, and that is with only 1 oxy 5mg. low est dose that comes in oxy's. but if you have to take pain med's after surgery, there is difference between sore pain or cd pain. you might have to get scoped for answers, pain in the ###. I'm sorry for you.
