Saw my pain doctor for first time

I saw my pain management specialist for the first time this week. I have had pain issues after multiple surgeries on my abdominal and pelvic area for cystic ovaries. My OB/GYN thinks that it may be adhesions and the pain doctor thinks that it is nerve damage from all the surgeries. He is starting treatment with Neurontin and I am a little unsure about the effectiveness of this medicine. He is also scheduling a Hypogastric Injection and I don't know what to expect with that or how it will help.

In the past I have only been treated with percocet and/or vicodin from the emergency room. This pain doctor will only use narcotics as a very last resort after all other treatment options have been exhausted.

Do these treatments sound familiar? Am I on the right track with this treatment and what should I expect with the Neurontin. He is starting me on 300mg a day gradually increasing to 2700mg a day. Is this normal? Thanks!
