Sorry to hear your daughter is in so much pain. It's a living hell. I have PHN for 8 years, on my second stimulator, taken off all drugs unless needed, 800 mg gabapentin 3x daily ( useless ). On my 8th pain dr ( reside in NYC ). New dr suggest physical therapy, medical marijunana. Will try it and see what happens.

Be careful few doctors in NYC just want money.

I wish your daughter well and your a great dad. God Bless you both

I've been on 90% of the opioids on the market including Fentynal for 2 1/2 years. Presently I'm taking gabapentin 800 mg 3 x daily ( I think it's a waste ). I suffer from PHN for the last 8 years. Never been addicted thank God. Have a spinal cord stimulator ( medtronic ) first one was put in wrong. This seems to help except my r/s neck, shoulder, very sensitive to touch. Sleeping very hard as well as wearing clothes. Have to keep positive. We wake up each day so God Is saying go FORWARD, DON'T STOP LIVING
