Just curious, will you all please let me know when you were able to return to work (full or part time). Please include what type of surgery and what type of work you do, what meds you went back to work on if any?
I am supposed to go back to work on 11/23, i dont see it happening, I have nerve damage, I am still on all meds, was told to start cutting back on Neurontin, i cut back one pill on Monday and by yesteday afternoon my fool felt like it was on fire with pins and needles in my calf,(PA says this is not unusual post op) I had to take an extra Norco just to be able to sleep. The Neorontin was keeping the nerve pain mostly bearable, but very sleepy, I need a nap after each dose. I obviously cant work like that, I also couldnt work with the pain i experienced yesterday.
Is anyone on long term disability or SS disability. I am very frustrated with my lack of progress, I feel like I am going backwards. My back has started hurting at different levels constantly, I am hoping that is just a side effect of PT. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
May God Bless and Keep you as you continue to heal or prepare for your proedure/surgery.
