Feb 24, 2017 · Herniated disk and pain. What helps? in Spine Health

This morning I had a CT Scan and compared to the MRI I had in October, it shows degenerative disk pinching the nerve. I cannot take the epidural injection because I’m on blood thinners. After consulting with my cardiologist and a pain doctor, my prescribing Dr. ordered from my pharmacy 2 Percocet every 4 hours, plus a 6 day course of of Steroid/Medro. If the Percocet doesn’t work, then take 1 ocicodin every 12 hours. Sounds like a lot of meds but the pain is horrific. . CVS has delivery only at 3 pm! No exceptions! And this is Upper Eastsid Manhattan. Getting neighbor to pick up. The heating pad while waiting. Lyrica never worked. Pain is burning/aching. Thx Jen
