Thought i'd do a small update.
I feel im doing well, small walks around house and down the street and back (literally takes less than 5 mins). Im finding everyday, i feel a different pain. The last couple of days ive been reducing pain medication, but today im back on gabapentin.
I came off gabapentin immediately from the fusion and had no leg pain. today,wow, has it come back with avengence! both legs electric. has anyone else experienced a return of leg pain so soon?
im hoping its a temporary thing, and have been stretching my legs because they feel tight.
My back pain is reducing
, but it easily pulls if you know what i mean. i can be pottering and suddenly i get an electric shock at the disc area and it hurts, but then wears off. its like it whips to let me know to be careful.
thanks for reading and i wish all well with their recoveries.
