    Five Months Post OP T12 Incomplete SCI

    Hi I am new to the spinal cord injury scene and have some questions about how I can manage neuropathic pain, and lower back pain. My pain is severe and the pain meds are not effective. I take gabapentin for nerve pain and Cyclobenzaprine and baclofen for leg spasms. I also take long acting oxycodone and tylenol 3 for pain. Despite being loaded up on drugs the pain is constant and I am finding it hard to cope. Any suggestions for other drugs I can talk to my doc about for pain relief? My pain is worse first thing in the morning and by bed time I am in tears. I use a walker to get around the house and a chair elsewhere.

    I had surgery and have a plate, pins, etc. I have only been home from the hospital two weeks and I am desperate for any tips.
