There have been some on this board who have posted their results on surgical procedures.
I believe that most neurologists consider it to be a last resort, since there are inherent risks and no guarantees that the pain will be gone after surgery.
Riccardo has mentioned several times a procedure where the nerves are blocked with lidocaine as a preliminary test to see if the surgery has a chance at success. The reasoning behind this is that if the lidocaine block provides no relief, then neither will the surgery.
Surgery is an awfully final approach. Why not check out the numerous success stories posted in the last few weeks regarding treatment with psilocybin mushrooms?
