hello, I'm new to the community . After 4 Years of constant pain after gallbladder Surgery l have have recently been diagnosed with post Herpetic neuropathy. my chronic pain Consultant was fantastic. She BELIEVED me! I wasn't going mad , I wasn't making my pain up . my treatment to stop the nerve pain was lidocaine patches . They are amazing . They anaethetise the nerves over a 12 hour period. and then the patches are removed for 12 hours. I'm also on Pregabalin 300 mg twice a day. the only fly in the ointment are the side effects. Poor concentration , memory impairment, clumsiness and Word finding problems. Would love to hear of your experiences regarding Post herpetic neuropathy after gall bladder surgery.
