Pain free after 8 years

A case of epidural injury after having done lumbar puncture eight years back. Patient mother of 9 year old boy was leading very active life until she got this bad experience of pain which made her loss her job,quitted all games, with restricted movements and weight gain of more than 20kgs. She had done treatments at different countries but failed. She was admitted at our hospital with an air bed support for sleep with large cushions added to elevate her legs. Not able to sit for more than one minute. Not able to bend forwards more than 45 degree. Under medication LYRICA- 300mg twice daily. Prior to admission at our hospital she was advised for 24hr infusion to get ridoff her pain

At the time of discharge, no more air beds, can sleep on hard surface without pain, no cushions to elevate leg, can sit for 15-20 minutes, can bend more than 90 degre, free from LYRICA 300mg twice daily. She is free to move and is confident to get back to work within 6 months.
