The nerve block, which I thought you all were talking about
, is a shot given that prevents the nerve from working, basically, for 60-90 days.
Strange. One of them I DID feel a wildly weird sensation where it felt like a bullet train running down my back from the injection site to my knee.
The doctor, I think, was unused to failure. It didn't take long for him to convert me from a pain block failure to a pain block challenge.
As to the Fentanyl, I think it is a topical solution. Same stuff used in Chloraseptic to kill sore throat pain (Chloraseptic is stronger than what they use as a local for the nerve block, I think).
I also failed on the Fentanyl Patch, by the way. Made it one day of the 9 day initial trial period and the pain was too intense - I had to go back to Lyrica/Cymbalta or whichever the tradeOff was.
