did the trick. At my 1 week post op check. The Dr. changed from soma 350 mg. 3xday to diazepam 5 mg. 2xday. Soma and flexeril have never worked for me. And switched the breakthrugh pain med. to oxycodone HCL 15 mg. Makes me too loopy but works well for the night pain. And increased my walking to 15 min. 3xday. But I'm doing 20 min. and getting away with it.
Good luck, Jim

  • I'm glad you are making some progress, even if it IS baby steps... you're getting there and that's the important thing!
  • I am so happy to hear this news.

    As Jeaux said... baby steps, baby steps. Don't over do it!

    Medication adjustments can certainly make a world of difference, particularly with you just getting out of surgery.

    Take good care and thanks for sharing the great news.
