Inflammation after back surgery.

I had an operation to have a large portion of disc removed from my lower back (left side) 7 years ago. This disc was prolapsing and causing intense pain in the back and left leg.
Since then I get quite a lot of inflammation on the left side of my back (to the left of the spine). This can be as a result of too much physical activity, too much rest or for no apparent reason. I take anti-inflammatory tablets (diclofenic 50mg) which help but in very severe cases I have to get an injection into the area and sometimes even cyclomorph for the pain.
Is there any medication that might act long term as I find the tablets very hard on the stomach or should I be doing something else to help the situation.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
