Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board

LAF ~ I have my first post-op appointment tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes.

Someone asked about pain: I am feeling quite good. I take oxycodone 20 mg and 75 mg lyrica twice a day. I have some otherthings to take as needed, but I haven't taken them since Saturday. Does that sound like a lot of pain medication?

I had a nice experience in the hospital. Everyone was nice, pleasant professional, helpful. From the beginning they kept me sufficiently medicated that I didn't feel much pain at all.

Guess I was very lucky!! :cool:

I probably should add that I kept a journal. I really don't remember much about that whole experience -- just little pieces here and there. Maybe they gave me drugs so I wouldn't remember!! When I wasn't at PT or eating, I slept. I slept a lot the first 10 days after surgery!!
