Back Problems board


Hi Debbie ~

I'm on oxycondin 20 mg 3x day and lyrica 2x day; I have vicodin and skelaxin for break-through pain which I mostly never take. I'm feeling perfectly normal except for this weird pain in the front of my thigh that I never had prior to surgery. I can sit at the computer all day and it doesn't bother me. I'm not sure how far I can walk because we have so much snow that I can't walk outside; the roads are still snow-packed or icy. But I know that thigh pain kicks in pretty quickly!

I drove one day last week to run a couple errands and felt I wasn't ready to be doing this all the time. By the time I got home, my legs were burning and I was tired. I feel unsteady on my feet, like my balance is a bit off. And I just feel a bit "off," most likely from the meds.

Otherwise I mostly stay home, watch movies, work at the computer. My husband has been doing the grocery shopping and some of the cooking.

I've had sciatic pain for 3 years. I've never had any surgery prior to this, have no other health issues and just turned 58....:eek: YIKES!!
