Discussions that mention lyrica

Back Problems board

Hi, its Jen, 5 months post op here. I went to PT yesterday and talked to an older lady who had a more difficult surgery than me and she is off her pain pills. I was so amazed that I am still suffering here. I have been sick since Christmas trying to get pain pills situated and trying other drugs like lyrica that made me so sick when I got off them, it felt like I had the flu.

Has anyone had this hard of a time getting off the pain pills, or been in so much pain 5 months post op? I was so frustrated to hear how well she was doing compared to me. I am down to 2 pain pills a day but I spend a good majority of the day in pain.
