Re: sciatic pain improving. . . finally :-)

There is hope after surgery?? I had 2 L5 S1 surgeries in a period of 7 months. After the first one I was feeling much better at 6 wks....it started hurting again at 4 months...disc herniated again....2nd surgery...I am 6 wks. out and freaking out. I am in such severe pain. I have to go back to work in 4 wks. and I can't imagine it. I can't even load the dishwasher or anything else. I am still taking Lortab. How long were each of you on pain meds after surgery? Does anyone keep this pain forever??
Good luck to both of you. BTW Lyrica did not work on me at all plus I gained 15 lbs! I stopped taking it.
