Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board

Well, I had my surgery to remove my hardware and I am still hurting, seems worse now than before.

I went to a pain clinic today. The doctor took me off the Lortab an put me on Oxycodone 15 mg. and Lyrica. I am supposed to call him within the week and let him know if he needs to change something or if it is working for me. He also talked to me about a spinal cord stimulator.

I don't know what I will do. I don't want to be dependent on medication the rest of my life nor do I want to be tied to having the SCS. Has anyone on the board had experience with one?
daldridge, I take the same as you lyrica 100mg 3 times a day plus I take oxycodone 2 every 4-6 hours , some times I take 3 at a time. 3 works for me. I do find it addicting , but I can throw them away anytime..?

Hope you start feeling better ,Oh , congrats on your hardware removel..
