    You may be putting weight on because you are not as mobile as you were before . Recovery takes time so don't try to rush it . You are on a journey to recovery not a race to recover . Don't worry everyone recovers at a different rate , some quicker than others , some slower there is no norm . You will get there in the end .

    Hi Mary,

    i am also 7 weeks out and have developed burning pain and stiffness ailing incision. Still in pain off and on. I don't want to take Norco again but it's sometimes an 8 and nothing else helps. Could I ask what nerve pain you are onand does it help?

    Check for interactions but Voltaren Gel (RX in the US), topical anti-inflammatory, worked GREAT for me.  Else, there's AsperCream with 4% Lidocaine OTC that you can try.  I HATE the nerve meds.  Gabapentin (Neurontin) will put 20 pounds on you in a single month.  Lyrica doesn't have the same dramatic weight effects (at least on me) but gave me no relief either.  The nerve pain will go away...just takes time...

    I'm guessing you're on lyrica.  That puts enormous of weight on.  Wind it down gradually now.  The burning pain happens for a while but it'll go.  Ice
