I've posted on here before but as my journey continues I keep having more questions so....here goes....what kind of meds are people in Australia taking? I was started in hospital on Targin and Endone (I'm now 6 and a bit post-op) and have been taking Endone (repeat prescriptions from the GP) ever since, along with 2 panadol. I have been taking these 3 times a day, before exercise, the last one carrying me overnight.
My question is this:
I'm due for another script but now have experienced a different kind of pain - more along the lines of hyper-sensitive areas (they feel like someone is rubbing sandpaper on the area) and wonder if it is nerve pain that a relative experienced following TKR number 2. If so, should I continue with the Endone or move to Lyrica which she was prescribed. My brother also has a bulging disc and he takes Lyrica for that.
I hope someone can suggest what I should do. Drs appointment tomorrow and want to go "forearmed" with some information.
Are other people still taking pain meds at just over 6 weeks?
