I HAVE NOT HEARD OF INSPAN,BUT I INTEND TO FINED OUT MORE.MAINLY BECAUSE YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE VERY CLOSE TO MINE,THOUGH I HAVE A FEW MORE
PROBLEMS.
AS TO PAIN, HOWEVER,I CAN ADD A LITTLE.
BEING I HAVE NOT OPTED FOR SURGERY (AS YET)
I AM TAKING MORPHINE HYDROCODONE.
I NO LONGER TAKE GABAPENTEN,BUT I DO BELIEVE IT HELPS LEG PAIN BUT ONLY IN THE HIGHER DOSAGES,1500MG .
I WILL BE INTERESTED IN YOUR PROGRESS AND I HOPE YOU FINED A SOLUTION TO YOUR PAIN.

Hi and welcome to the support group -

I have never heard of this, and I just had my 2nd fusion surgery (12/4)

I did some research and found this site - it may answer some of your questions thus where you can ask your surgeon more.

I must say it does look pretty graphic so bear with it - looks very informative.

Keep us posted what you find out~~
