Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation

Quick update, I had this procedure carried out 3 weeks ago to try to help relieve severe phantom pains that I was getting in feet that I do not have, so far so good, I have not noticed any change in the frequency of the pains but can report that the severity of these pains has certainly lessened. I appreciate that it is still early days but if things continue to improve I fully intend to reduce the medications that I currently take to the least amount that is needed to maintain my current pain levels, I have already reduced pregabalin by 150 mg per day and will further reduce this by a further 100mg daily at the end of next week.

I went with this procedure in the hope that I would benefit from it, but also that others may find that this is a treatment that may be of use to them.
