I was taken off Percocet and put on 50 mg of Lyrica twice a day for pain. It is not helping with the pain caused Brian bilateral total knee replacements 5 weeks ago.
Doctors are stretching things lately. Things like cymbalta and lyrica are for specific types of pain and they aren't post surgical pain. A knee replacement is a painful operation and you need to have your pain relieved in order to do the pt that is needed. Its getting so bad, no doc is operating on me until he promises me he will treat my pain appropriately. I wonder what your doc would take if it was his knee.
