I've been suffering from a herniated disc for about a year, more intensely over the last 6 months. I have been put on gabapentin (3x300mg per day). To begin with I still had all the pain I was getting down my right leg (sharp pain, dull ache, intense pins and needles) but it has started to get better. I can move around more freely etc. I am supposed to be getting surgery in around 3 months time. Is the gabapentin finally kicking in or is the disc retracting back in and should I think about cancelling the op? I'd like to also wean myself off the gabapentin. Any help would be massively appreciated.
