Default Question on TC Surgery recovery

I had TC surgery to treat the cysts by Dr. Feigenbaum in 2013. I continue to have high levels of pain due to the nerve treated not healing but instead becoming more and more inflamed. Are there others having similiar experiances?

Default Recovering from TC surgery ith Dr. Feigenbaum in Aug 2013

I have been recovering from this surgery for 2 + years. Dr. Feigenbaum his staff have been exceptional. Unfortunately the nerve root most impacted by the surgery is inflammed (no guarentees) I realize it will be a long term recovery for me, but am in much better shape than before the surgery. The good news, is that Pain Mgmt techniques with a prescribed TENS unit and a compounded cream (that contains nerve pain killers, etc) are very effective. Because of the nerve damage caused by the cysts (3 of them) I am dealing with pain at the surgery site, and down my right let and into foot and toes. I feel blessed because I have a good med insurance and have found relief from the pain. I still must be very careful and not bend much or walk very far (1 mile max).

Hi Bobi J.. I am new to this neurotalk forum. I was wondering if you are still participating, as your last post was in 2012. My MRI is showing 8 cysts.. and I am scheduled for surgery with Dr. Feigenbaum on December 20. I had some questions for you if you wouldn't mind...? thanks
