Say a prayer for me I go Monday to have a MRI due to constant pain in my lower back, except on the opposite side of my Aug. 18th surgery. I have had some, what the doc says as "odd" problems ever since I had surgery.
I haven't done anything to reherniate, if there is anything there it would have been left from what the surgeon wasn't able to see or get out. I sure hope there isn't anything there im not ready for a second surgery already.
I still have sciatica just not as bad as right after surgery. I did get my muscle strength back in my left leg and my right ankle is a small bit better. At least I had some progress.
Im thinking about asking my Surgeon to try nuerontin and physical therapy. My family doc let me try Cymbalta since I was having depression along with nerve issues, but by day 2 it was making me so nauseated I couldn't get out of bed. I don't see how some folks can get used to taking it. On my first day it helped, but it hadn't made me sick yet and it did relieve some of my pain.
This MRI is with contrast, so im told they will inject die into me. Has this made any of you sick, just wondering what to expect here.
