There is no compulsion about sex.If you want to have sex or not is your decision.The usual waiting period is 6-8 weeks after you deliver.Back pain is more common during late stages of pregnancy,not after.

How long does Percocet stay in your system, I gave some to my husband for his back pain after shoveling snow for 4 hours, and now we found out he has to take a urine test this Friday for a new job, the last pill he took was this past Saturday. the pills were 650mg

doctor1 MD

Hello,
This generally depends upon the dosage,body weight,metabolic rate etc.
However in general PERCOCET stays in system from 3-8 days and can be detected in urine till that time.
Thanks

doctor1 MD

Hi Mam,
I have gone through your query.
It suggests that you have only feeling of the pregnancy but there are no chances of pregnancy. For this better to consult the Obstetrician and gynecologist for better management.

Wish you good...

Hi dr .i am experiencing back pain but its a bit weird. whenever im in the cold situation, ( morning or at night) my back and right leg will feel the pain. its seems connected because whenever i lifted my right leg, my back will really hurt. i suppose my bone the one feel the pain. could you explain why is that and how probably i cure this?

doctor1 MD


you are right the leg pain and back pain is connected.
any pain which is originating from back and radiating down the leg is known as sciatica.
you should consult a good physiotherapist to manage this problem.
wishing you complete recovery...

I delivered my last child on August 31, 2010. Eight weeks after, I had my post-partum check up and had an IUD inserted. By the end November 2010, I started noticing a pain in my left flank area. It was a dull aching pain, but when massaged deeply, would go down my back, wrap around the front of my hip and make the front of my leg go numb. I went to the chiropractor for about two months, then with no results, visited my primary doctor. Blood and urine tests were fine. MRI showed slight bulging in the RIGHT L5, S1 discs. Went to 25 physical therapy visits with still no relief. I gave up for a while on finding out what was wrong. By February 2012 (guessing), I had my Mirena pulled out by my OBGYN. I had been having lots of stomach pain and my husband had a vasectomy, so I really didn t need the birth control anymore anyway. By October 2012, I believe, I had an ultrasound because I was having lots of pain and cramping in my stomach. Results were normal. By then end of 2012, I was experiencing extreme fatigue and visited my new primary doctor. We tried different antidepressants until I stayed on Effexor XR beginning April 2013. I started seeing a massage therapist once a week beginning in probably August of 2013 for my back, with no relief at all. Extreme fatigue continued and after blood work kept coming back fine, he sent me to a cardiologist. In November 2013 I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). I was put on 5mg of Midodrine 3 times a day. My fatigue disappeared almost immediately. The pain in my back has always been there since November of 2010, but I was ready to try again since I was seeing a new primary doctor. He sent me to a pain management doctor who has now done 3 nerve injections, all with no relief from the flank pain (Deep massage did not seem to bother and make the front of my leg go numb though). Another MRI was ordered, and this one had the same results as the first, except I had a mild dehydration on the left side at L4,L5. My primary doctor still did not believe it was the cause for my flank pain, so he ordered a CT. Those results came back this week showing I had a swollen uterus. Since I am up do date with my pap smears and I had an ultrasound that showed nothing about 18 months prior, he does not believe this is the reason for the left flank pain either. I am completely at a loss and don t know what to do next. The pain management doctor said that it could be from the POTS. It has been going on for so long now that want to go down every avenue and rule everything else out before I just accept it as a POTS symptom. Sometimes when lying on my stomach, it seems to relive a little bit of the flank pain. The massage has just been aggravating it lately, and also laying on my right side seems to aggravate it. Since I can pinpoint when the pain started, I ve wondered if it could have had something to do with my last delivery or even the epidural from the delivery. I could use any insight or ideas that could maybe trigger an idea for my primary doctor. It has been almost 4 years since I realized the pain starting (and I have a high pain tolerance, so it could have been there for longer). I know this is a lot of information, but thank you in advance!

I have had 2 spine surgeries (L4, L5) Discectomy 1st 15 years ago and the last June 2009. I was told at the last surgery I would have to have a fusion of L4, L5, sacrum. In the last few weeks, my back has been hurting alot along with my right testicle. I asked my Dr about this, and he said the 2 are not related. However, My testicle only hurts whne my back hurts and the Dr cannot give me another reaon for the pain. Is this because of the back pain? Also, if I do have the fusion, how much range of motion will I lose?
