Good morning Cathy!
Welcome to the CP forum! So sorry to hear of your increased pain! It sounds like you have a good PM though, and hopefully they can help you soon. I was also started on gabapentin recently, and have been sleeping my life away in the evenings. At the moment I'm only on 300mg x3...and at first I was thinking it was helping....but it seems the last two days...I'm slipping back into the harder pain levels.
I see you are on the higer dose of Gabapentin....although you are suffering more at the moment....did you find relief when you were scripted this dose?
Lets hope that you find the right surgeon on your insurance plan...and that you will get some relief after the surgery.
...also never be embarrassed about ranting here on this forum...that's what were here for....lots of support! Rant all you want...and support if you feel like it.
