Pain sucks but nerve pain is the worst. Don't remember if you're on Neurontin but if not, you might want to consider it to get you past this post surgical pain hump - which hopefully will last only a few weeks. If you're already on it, some nice good drugs can be your friend.

Though in intense pain from nerve damage, I took Dilaudid for 6 months and though I couldn't drive, it did take care of the pain. Personally, when the time came, I had no trouble, slowly, getting off of it.

Judy, I so hope this surgery resolves all your pain issues but for the time being, take whatever you have to to stay comfortable.
