Neurontin/coccyx surgery

Terri -

I have been looking at this site for 6 months and have never told my story. I have been suffering with pain for 2 years after a fall injury. I did not realize how controversial this subject is. Finding a doctor to do the surgery is VERY difficult. I am from Michigan and am travelling to NC to see Dr Dickerson in one month. Now that's desperate.

I have been to Cleveland Clinic and they prescribed neurontin and a $150 cushion. The cushion offers very little help the Neurontin works very good, but you can not quit taking it. I tried after two months and the pain was worse than before.

Please wish me luck! I will let you know how it goes.
