    This is great! Too bad the brain doesnt find a detour to send signals down the cord.

    I haven't looked at this forum for 15 years. I gave up searching the internet for a way to remove this pain after two unsuccessful surgeries by Dr. Falci in April and August of 2003. The surgeries I had were the CA-DREZ (computer assisted - dorsal root entry zone) lesioning; the same procedure described in this thread. I do the best I can now with a drug regimen consisting of large doses of neurontin, effexor, and 75 microgram/hour fentanyl patches. There have been no changes to this drug combination for the last 10 years. Prior to that, my pain specialist tried every drug and drug combo, tried spinal cord stimulation and tried an intrathecal pain pump. Nothing worked better than the drug regimen I described, so I've stuck with that. The only time I'm pain free is when I'm asleep and the drugs I take for pain certainly have a large sedative effect.
