Hi, I`m so pleased I found you all here. I had an epidermoid cyst removed from my brain stem 10 years ago. Thankfully it was successful and so far no re-growth. However since that time I`ve taken a sleeping pill ...a benzodiazepine. I stopped the benzo a few months ago but have had severe back pain since. Since the surgery this is the 1st time I`ve been without the benzodiazepine and am beginning to wonder if that was treating post surgery back pain....I `ll add that I never had this pain before the surgery and basically wondering if we can have severe pain after that operation ....many thanks
