Is Celebrex noted for weight gain?

I have had 3 back surgeries, the disc above my fusion is herniating; and my Neurosurgeon feels I have SI joint dysfunction. I saw the pain management team yesterday and was given samples of Celebrex - which I'm very excited to try. I have a codeine allergy, which includes ALL codeine derivatives. If taken my blood pressure drops and I pass out.
As a nurse I totally over looked the potential use of Celebrex; as I haven't heard of its use for pain in regards to back pain.

Celebrex is a COX-2 inhibitor NSAID. It helps back pain if inflammation is causing the pain.
