The lortab 10 mg is helping me alot on my back pain . I see an improvement in my pain. But still can't get rid of this hip pain. Hubby and I also got a new bed  so that also helps my back symptoms also. I know eventually I will need surgery because my pm told me so she looked at my xrays and ct scans   by that she told me so. If the pain meds help for now that is a good thing for niw. I cant afford surgery right now anyways. I hope everyone has a lpd. How was everyone's Easter? Mine was good,

Gramps, I am sorry you cant have any more pain meds. Actually I take 30 mg of lortab a day  10 mg 3 times a day.plus soma 3 a day. so Im not just taking 10 mg of lortab a day. so its like taking an extra pill a day. The only reason I brought up surgery is because I have no longer control of my urine because of my back problems.

Kara:

Gramps is right, though. Even 30 mg/day of lortab is really a pretty low dose of pain medication. Lortab is one of the more mild medications, so you are very fortunate that it is helping you so much. Gramps is not the first persona I have heard say that surgery has only made their pain worse. That is very reason I have been trying so hard to avoid it. In your other post, it sounded like maybe your other symptoms will be relieved with continued weight loss. If that works, perhaps you won't have to consider surgery.

Gramps:

I am sorry to hear you are feeling so poorly. I hope they can find a good balance of pain medications for you soon.
