femoral nerve pain damage
I have femoral nerve damage pain from hip revision surgery. The damage happened from "traction" used in the surgery(retractors). I had an EMG, NRV, tests, but didn't show a nerve was severed, only that the nerves were"stretched" during the procedure, due to many surgeries on my hip.
The Neurologist said that I need "time & patience". However, I need help dealing with this condition. I have knee and upper thigh pain, burning, and electric shocks up and down my left leg. I'm on 300mg Neurontin3 x/day, which helps with the electric shocks, but not the knee pain. I'm not able to do many of my daily activities, like I used to do prior to the hip revision. I'm frustrated and angry. Has anyone has this problem and how are you dealing with it?
