Back Problems board


Good evening or NO it is morning!!!! The nausea is caused by the new antibiotic they put me on and they also gave me medicine for the nauseau but doesn't take care of it all the time.

Apocalypto22 I do have nerve pain and I take Lyrica but it doesn't really help so I will probably stop it because no sense taking the medicine if it doesn't help. One strange thing about my nerve pain is before my surgery I had sciatic pain on the left but now after first surgery I have severe pain on the right and numbness on the right shin. The surgeon told me that when they put the cage in they were able to raise 3/4 of an inch. It only makes sense that there is pain but it just doesn't make it any better.

Dee maybe Feb.18th is a good luck sign for me since that is also your birthday. Also, my sister-in-law is named Dee and she is such a sweetheart and I am lucky to have her as a "sister" and I am lucky to have all of you.

Hey Emily I know what you mean about all those muscles. I find myself stuck in one position at night and it takes me forever to get turned over and having pain all the time while moving. Today I have been having trouble with the nerve pain down my right butt when I sit down. Even when I walk and put weight on my right foot then it causes the shooting pain, also. I am getting so stiff and I have cried several times this weekend because of the pain. I can't even imagine how I am going to feel when they put the rods and screws in since I feel so bad right now. My abdomen incision does look better today and is not draining so the antibiotics are working. I am still running a slight fever but better then last week.

I want to thank all of you again because I am so thankful to have all of you that understand. Good night to everyone and hopefully a good night's sleep.
