am sorry for the vagueness from my part in the electrical signals portion. I meant it was a surgery to test what nerves were functional and which nerves were malfunctioned by sending stimulating electrical signals to the nerves, and as far as medicines she is taking Tramadol 50mg, Gabapentin 300mg, Cyclobenzaprine 10mg, and Oxycodon for severe pain, I have the report with me with the procedure.
I also note that when she is in her severe pain cases, most of the medications stated above to not decrease her pain.
Gabapentin 3 times a day, Tramadol once a night, Cyclobenzaprine also only once a night. as stated, oxycodon is only for very severe pain, so that one can be once a week to once every three days depending. Cyclobenzaprine is the only new medication she is taking, the rest have been the same for some time now.
What exactly is a chemical sympathectomy, does it destroy the nerves?
would the sympathectomy reduce her chances of recovering movement in her arm?
