Re: scar tissue

I am so sorry that you are experiencing such pain. Surgery could end up producing more scar tissue.

As far as the Neurontin dosage I listening to a pain specialist lecture and dosages of 1800 mg can be effective. Additional benefit of using doses greater than 1800 mg/day was not demonstrated. In fact the bioavailability of the drug decreases with increasing dosages.

Neurontin has been my best friend. It helped where narcotics did not. I have been taking it for several years as surgery was no longer an option.
