Hello everyone, Would you be so kind and give me any info in your wealth of experience that may help me make a decision. I had a microdisctomy on May 13th, everything went o.k. but I developed nerve pain post-op. I couldn't take neurotin or lyrica because of serious side effect so my surgeon ordered a new MRI, it came back with no compressions and no additional surgery required. He suggested a nerve block, and would like to have it scheduled. I am not familiar with nerve blocks and although I could do some research on it, however, I choose to ask my friends here on the message board to give me the straight and honest scoop from there own experience. Thanking you in advance!
