nerve pain after a bilateral facet joint denervation

Help, my daughter had the above treatment but 5 days after it she is in agony. The pain isn't at L1/2 2/3 & 3/4 but actually has moved around onto her hip, the skin is really painful to touch and she can hardly walk - the consultant beliefs it is nerve based and is trying to find the right mix of drugs but as variant's of morphine don't work my daughter has to endure the pain. Any one heard of had something like this??


  • after a Radio frequency ablation procedure. This should subside in a few days to a few weeks, but it can be a rough time while you wait. The doctor can give her medications used specifically to treat nerve pain, such as Lyrica or gabapentin or even cymbalta , all of which are excellent medications used specifically to treat nerve pain. Morphine and opiates in general do not generally treat neuro pain, they are for mechanical pain
