Well....it's almost 6pm, and I got shot at 9 this morning. For the first 6 hours, my lower back pain was minimal. I was riding in my wife's car this afternoon, when the aching lower back pain started coming back. The doctor said that he is not cut happy, and always believes in giving alternatives a chance, but, sometimes minimal invasive surgery will improve my stenosis and SI dysfunction (which I've had for close to 20 years from running). I don't quit honestly know what they would do, but I certainly am NOT up for any fusion or anything like that. I don't have any herniated disks, just a crummy old back. I also don't notice any change in the feet. I did take my daily 75mgs of Lyrica and my 2 50mgs of Tramadol. Tonight, when I go to bed, I will also take my 1600mgs of Neurontin. I have eliminated one 800mg pill, and have been on the 1600 for 2 weeks now. I see my GP tomorrow, and I am going to go over all this gobbledegook with him.
