Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board

I had back surgery in Feb 2006. I watched my diet and carbs and lost 40 lbs after my surgery because I knew that I would be inactive and didn't need to gain any more weight.

In October, I had to have cervical surgery. I have gained 21 lbs. I can't blame it on the surgeries as much as my own pity party and what I am eating. I have been on Neurontin for a year and a half, I can't blame the weight gain on that or the Lyrica I am on now. I just ate alot of convenient food that was fattening.

Just try to prepare ahead of time for those quick and easy meals but not "junk" meals. Keep the junk food out because it will be too tempting to eat and sit and snack on.

Good luck with your surgery! :angel: hugs
