Still in loads of pain since my surgery in april. I still have alot of back problems. I hate taking pain medicine but I have decided that if I want to do anything at all like work or go out with my family that I have to take something or I am irritable and grumpy from pain.
I have been taking flexreel, Percocet, and Ibuprofen. I go to pain management monday and from what Ive been told by my doctor I will be staying on these and adding lyrica for my nerve pain.
I dont want to become addicted to these meds but I have to have something to be able to function. I guess my question would be. Is there anything else I could take for pain that is non addictive. Im scared to death. Ive seen alot of people with back problems like mine become addicted.
Any advice is appreciated. You guys are great. I read all the stories. No one understands what we are going through better than others with the same problems.
