They thought it was a specific nerve, the nerve was removed but the pain still comes back several times a week.

Two things
Gabapentin...very good for this type of pain
Next: Physical therapy as directed by a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor...PM&R.
This will tailor a therapy to you based on a whole body diagnosis.

good luck
