Hry, firstly welcome back, it's nice to see you on here. I had planned to private message you but I couldn't work out how to do that ????
So, I'm 7 weeks post posterior repair and still suffering. My GP thinks my pain is caused by my sciatic nerve, possibly due to inflammation (and hopefully not nerve damage)
My question to you is I've been prescribed gabepentin, is this a drug that builds up in your system and should stop the pain or does it wear off? I have been told to it take it at night which now gives me a better night sleep and the pain is ok until around lunchtime when it's back and I need to take codeine which actually doesn't do an awful lot. Also do you know how long the inflammation can take settle?
I'm still off work but due back on Monday. I am seeing my GP tomorrow to discuss next steps as she questioned whether I should have an MRI. I'm not sure if I should go back or not, Im sure she will sign me off again if I should take longer to rest.
