Back Problems board


Hi Billy ~

I'm sorry you're having such a rough time trying to find a good pain med. I was on oxycodone and then vicodin for break-through pain, with lyrica twice a day for nerve pain. But you had much more surgery than I did. It's going to take you longer to heal from all the carpentry work they did on you.

I know you're a carpenter, so you'll appreciate what my PT said to me last week. She has observed back surgeries several times and she said the doctor looks just like a carpenter -- he has a saw, a drill, a type of screwdriver, and of course all these metal screws!! She described my back as a carpentry project.:)

I hope you fine a med that takes away your pain. Good for you for walking, especially when you're in pain.

Hang in there -- :angel:
