Back Problems board

How many of you who had lower back surgery now suffer from neuropathy in your feet? For my bf it started over a year ago slightly but he started to notice it more over the summer and since his hardware removal surgery in Sept 07 it has gotten significantly worse. The meds such as Lyrica, Neurontin and Cymbalta cause pain in his eyes so he can't take those types of meds. He will be seeing a neurologist soon but if anyone has any suggestions other than meds, I would really appreciate the help. I've been putting lidocaine patches on the top of his feet and that helps temporarily.
