Chronic Postsurgical Pain is not uncommon. Incisions, pressure, distension can all add up to lingering pain – after an operation that likely took place to alleviate pain! Sometimes referred to as post-laminectomy syndrome, where the surgery takes place on the back to relieve nerve compression, the results can be favorable – but the pain can remain.
Interventional pain techniques can help. The doctors at Anesthesia Pain Care Consultants have had significant success treating patients with post-laminectomy syndrome. Pain Pathways offers advice to help prevent the potential post-surgical pain. For those who already have it, or where these suggestions don’t work, there are means of combating it.
