She would actually need to be seen a neuro-surgeon for possible removal of the mass/ cyst that is causing compression of the nerves. Meanwhile there are a few options that can be considered for pain relief, depending on the severity. I would suggest consulting a pain management specialist meanwhile for temporary relief of pain.
Hope this is helpful.
she has been seeing her GP for the pain, he keeps trying different meds, Tylenol 4, morphine, hydromorphone, none of which are givng her much relief. I guess we wait and hope for the best. Our biggest fear is that the nerve is permanently damaged once the pressure is finally removed, since it will be pinched for such a long period of time.
You need to have your primary Dr. refer you to another surgeon!!!
