I too take Gabapentin (Neurontin) 600mg 3 times daily and it has made a differnce. I also take 450 mg of Lyrica a day. I only have to take hydrocodone occasionally to keep the pain at bay. I have had three surgeries to remove pelvic adheisons that appeared out of nowhere about six years ago. I had endometriosis removed 20 years ago, but didn't have a problem again until about 15 years later then suddenly, extreme pain. Turns out I had adhesion and my bladder keeps growing to my colon and I have a persistant mass on my right side low down in my hip. I am glad to see that it is working for others as well. Good luck to all that read this, I feel your pain. Literally. Oh, and I am seeing a therapist that specializes with people in chronic pain and that has helped so much. She has given me ways to deal with the anger and depression that go along with always hurting.
