How is This Type of Surgical Procedure Performed?

Almost universally, surgery to decompress, repair or remove injured nerves can be performed on an outpatient basis. On rare occasions, a 23-hour overnight stay at a hospital may be necessary. There is usually very little in the way of post-operative, confining dressings and/or restrictions and patients are able to eat and drink whatever they like immediately following the procedure. Pain medicine is prescribed for a post-operative discomfort which is usually very well tolerated. Depending on your specific history, the particular type of procedure you have had performed and which nerve or nerves have been addressed in your particular case full recovery can vary. Generally speaking, a procedure is never considered unsuccessful until at least a year has gone by as nerves can often take many months to recover and patients can often see steady improvement for many months following their procedures.chronic pain_pg3
