Discussions that mention norco

Back Problems board


Its been a good month since I posted. My nerve pain post surgery has gotten a little better. I was supposed to take Lyrca but chose not to. I was told by my surgeon during this time to go back to my Injection Dr as well to see about another Injection as well. That Dr gave me an EMG test ( that was FUN!) to test my nerve and good news is no nerve damage. Both Drs feel the nerve is just irritated and will take time to calm down. I am scheduled to get an Epidural on Jan 8 to see if that will help some more. I finally get to go back to work next week. My pain is the worst in the AM when I am in bed. Once I get up and move around for a few hours I seem to be pain free. I sometimes take a half Norco to help.

Hi CuteT – Yes I am still around. I am trying to only come into the forum every couple weeks to get my mind off the back and onto other things. I am sooo very sorry to hear about your Hubbies set back. I have my injection on the 8th. I am not to concerned as its my 7th one so I am kinda used to it. I wish I could offer you some good advise, but all I can offer is my thoughts and prayers for him! My condition has continued to get better. I still pain and it’s a SLOW SLOW decrease in pain. I still get the weird broken ankle pain, but not as often and only when I drive and do a pelvic tilt. Also its not as sever, used to go all the way around the ankle. Now just the outside. Also I can sleep a little better. I am still on Norco as needed. Usually 1 a day broken in half and taken in the am and the night. I also started back at the gym walking on a treadmill every day at lunch along with my PT exercises I learned last year. So far can only do a dew of them. I am trying to be as careful as possible. I will pop back in here in a day or two.
