Back Problems board


I am 1 year and 4 months out from my PLIF. I have had mod to severe pain in the right side of my back since about June of 2004. I was just sent to a pain clinic after my surgeon said that the fusion is perfect and there was nothing else he could do except more surgery to remove the hardware. (thats what he thinks is the problem even though bone scans are normal) They gave me Neurontin 6 pills a day and Relafen, I have never taken these before, Seems like the Neurontin would make you loopy. Had anyone taken either of these before. What side effect have you noticed. Is anyone else having this much pain this far out?? Im just about going crazy. Cant stand it much longer. Im only 25, just married, and feel useless.. Thanks so much. :rolleyes:
