The back pain was the worst. I honestly felt like someone had beat me with a baseball bat in my back. I was so sore! I am sorry your sister is having to experience this pain. It does subside slowly. She will just have to focus on resting and healing. As far as the medications, I am not sure. I refuse pain medications because I wanted to walk and heal faster. I could not function on medications.
Please tell your sister that we are all wishing her well in her recovery.
