Re: 6 1/2 weeks post ALIF Update
It sounds like you are doing great! And welcome to the world of sciatica. rotten isn't it? Nerve pain is just plain nasty. I don't think that you will be on Neurontin all of your life. As the nerve settles down and the swelling decreases, the pain should abate. You may get flare ups now and again, depending on what you do-or in your case if your period sets it off. Let's hope that it settles down and goes away...and congrats for the recovery.
