... nerve has anyone else had this surgery and did it help? I take neurotin and advil but get little relief. My neurosurgen recomends I have surgery now. What is anyones advise?
Only you can decide. Have you have a second opinion? I have had 27 surgeries over the past 5 years and every time I say to myself this time it will be better and really not be negative make sure you get all your answers upfront. Like how many of these proceedures has he /she done. How many of them have given the patient the pain relief you expect. Everyone is different but he can give you a ball park firgure. You may even ask for a reference such as a patient that has been treated with this proceedure. Is therapy a option? It may seen like a lot to ask but you only have 1 shot at getting it right and that is the first time. I hope this helps you some. You may also talk to friends and or your regulas doctor to see if they know anything about his reputation I guess its kinda like you don't want to see his diploma but you want to see his report card and what grade did he get in repairing herniated disc pressing on sciatic nerves. Good Luck God Bless and I will keep you in my prayers
