Re: 3 weeks post ALIF pain(discomfort)question??

I had an ALIF at L5, cage, screws and synthetic bone graft on 8/9 and returned to work (waitressing) today. Stopped pain meds last Sunday, but am taking Neurontin 300mg x 3/day. Overall feel ok. Some minor back twinges from time to time and stifness, but doing well. I find that the walking helps A LOT. I am however, having a lot of GI problems now. Has anyone elso experienced that? I go in Wed for an EGD Endoscopy to find out what is going on. Also, knots under incision? Is this normal?
