Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board


Hi Angelia, I had a micro d on my L4 L5 on DEc 16th of 03 and a reherniation soon after so had a redo on Jan 9th of 04. They told me the samething that I'd be back to work in 6 to 8 weeks. Here it is the end of May of 06 and I'm still out of work with nerve pain. The Dr is having me try Lyrica for nerve pain and it seems to be working a little. I'm sure IF all goes right and IF you don't reherniate it may be possible to go back to work in 4 to 6 weeks on light duty. I never made it that far. I'm basicly back to square on with the epidoral injections and nerve pain. Seeing how there are alot of IF's, See IF the Dr is willing put that 6 to 8 weeks in writting.

Good Luck.
Joe
