After my surgery I did get more movement back on my left side but I'm still enduring a lot of pain numbness and pressure still down my entire left side.ive had an mri done 3 times since and it still shows and open syrinx my brain. My neurosurgeon has talked about putting in a shunt but I said no more. The only medication that allows me to function is gabapentin 600 and oxycodone 15mg.and ibprophen 800 3× a day. But now I'm starting to feel nausea with the oxy.i don't want anything but the pain and pressure is unbarable without them. I tried lyrica and couldn't deal with the pain so I stopped taking it and got back on my gabapentin. I'm tired of my life not being normal.i was a very vibrate 38 year old salon owner. I can't do half the things I use to because of the pain. And I was told I would be okay after 3 to 6 months.im very frustrated.
