Persistent Trapezius and Occipital pain post C-4/5 Discectomy
All the post-discectomy pain from front entry procedure and two titanium cages was gone after 45-60 days however the trapezius 'knot' and pain returned accompanied by occipital right side tenderness (to touch). Its constant and celebrex or gabapentin doesn't seem to help a lot.
Will it resolve by itself?
Is it possible an ablation of the nerves in the area will help?
I have moved out of the state I had the surgery in so am at a loss who to see or what might be done to relieve this condition. Appreciate responses.
