Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry about your wife and foot pain after knee replacement surgery
has she consulted with a neurologist and a pain management doctor?
has she tried nerve pain medications like neurontin or lyrica to see if these help the pain?
what dose of gabapentin? she may need higher doses of gaba.
has she consulted with a neurologist?
300mg is a very low dose of neurontin,
she may need higher doses
neurontin dose should be slowly increased up to 2700 to 3600mg a day to help with nerve pain.
higher doses can cause fatigue in some patients, but can help decrease nerve pain
