Hi LAF ~

Sounds like you've received good advice. When I left the hospital, I was given prescriptions for oxycontin and lyrica which I am supposed to take 'round the clock. I have no way of knowing if the lyrica is helping, as I've been taking it ever since I left the hospital. It certainly hasn't made any difference with this weird new pain I have across the front of my thighs.

Before I had surgery, I tried neurontin for a while, to see if it would help the sciatic pain I had...and it didn't help at all.

I have been comfortable sitting ever since I got home from the hospital. My problem is that I sit longer than I know I probably should.

I agree that it sounds like you're doing too much. We've set aside this time to recover, so you should listen to your body and rest as much as you can. You'll have plenty of time to sit up later, when you have healed!!

Take good care,

xx M;)M
