Back Problems board


Hiya:
I wasn't given any nerve meds by my surgeon following my L5-S1 fusion almost two years ago and didn't require them until about 15 months after my surgery, when my flareups starting getting more frequent, likely due to scar tissue and some other issues. Post-surgery, the nerve pain calmed down in a couple of months and I was given percocet initially, then vicoden during my recovery period Hope this helps some!

Well, in theory, if they do your surgery right you shouldn't have a recurrence of nerve pain. That's not always the case though, and most people get flare-ups now and then. Sometimes that's just the nerve getting used to not being compressed.

I was given a low-dose, general pain reliever (morphine sulfate XR) and an acute pain reliever (vicodin). After 4 months I'm off of the morphine and taking 1-3 doses of vicodin depending on the pain - which is mostly from soreness, as I have started physical therapy and am working out long atrophied muscles. I've never taken anything specifically for nerve pain, though I tried Neuronitin and it did nothing.

I was on various things in the painful months leading up to the surgery, and some things worked and some didn't; I had a terrible time on Percocet, lots of horrible side effects.

Good Luck,
David

I was just given my second months worth of Endcoet 10/325 4 times daily for l4/l5 and l5 S1 herniation.I have been feeling some strange side effects as well- can you be more specific about what you felt on these meds?


Thanks,
Neal
