Femoral nerve damage after hip revision


I am new to this site. I had a left hip revision 2/09 and now have femoral nerve damage from the surgery. I'm on Neurontin 300 mg 3 x a day for the shooting nerve pain. I also have severe knee pain, like a tourniquet is wrapped around my knee. That pain never goes away, however I can sleep.I cant' sit, stand or walk for very long. Is there anyone who has had the same experience, and how are you managing this condition? The neurologist
just told me that I need "time & patience." I'm very frustrated, and I'm applying for disability, because I can't work, because I can't sit for very long. I also have other orthopedic condtions. I'm looking for help dealing with this condition, which has turned my life upside down. Thank you
