Discussions that mention ibuprofen

Back Problems board

Hi Gary and welcome to the board:wave:
How many weeks has it been since your surgery? Remember that this is major surgery, the nerves get moved around and irritated. It will take awhile for them to get settled down. Have you been taking it easy and following the doctors orders? Try ice or heat, whichever one feels better and some Ibuprofen for inflammation. Have you talked to your surgeon yet about this? You may want to call him and make him aware. Often they will do an MRI just to make sure the surgery site looks good. Were you injured, how did you end up having surgery? Did you have this leg pain before your surgery? Sometimes you can end up with nerve damage if the nerve was compromised for a long time. Give us a few more details about your situation. Godd luck and keep us posted.
