The titanium plate is embedded deep in to the bone to strengthen it. If it is showing, you need to consult your treating doctor or specialist at the earliest as it is an open wound and can lead to infection. Deep infection into muscle, bone carries very big risk and can lead to life threatening septicemia. Meet you doctor at earliest. Hope I have answered your query. Happy to help

Neuropathy is something like irritation of the nerves due to many reasons. Neurontin on a long term basis is good as it is going to calm the nerves and prevent nerve irritation. There are no major long term side effects as such. Continue to take the medicine.
