Comment:
I have DDD,sponylosis,arthritis and scoliosis. I am also 7 months post op from a spinal fusion L2-S1. I have stenosis at L5-S1 that is causing nerve root impingement. thsi strength of Vicodin has allowed me to return to work-at least part-time. I have noticed that I am starting to build up a tolerance...hope this stops soon as I am on the max. doseage.
