Oct 3, 2013 · Neuropathic pain due to laparoscopy in Neuropathy

I am on gabapentin and nortriptyline. Would you recommend switching from the nortriptyline to imipramine?

Thanks, cathryn

Thanks for your reply! What does the nerve block involve? I have a pain specialist and have had several cortisone shots which do provide some relief. But I am looking for better
options to manage the pain. The procedure I mentioned is minimal and seems to involve putting a probe under the skin and making it really cold to literally freeze the damaged nerve. The article I found is at:

Has anyone heard of this procedure and whether it is being done clinically in the US or Canada?

I have bad nerve pain due to a damaged nerve during surgery. I read an article about a procedure where the nerve is frozen to relieve pain. I believe they called it cryoneurolysis. Has anyone heard of this and where it is being done?

Hi there,

I am suffering with terrible nerve pain in my abdomen following two laparoscopies for endometriosis and other gynecological reasons.

My pain specialist has describes it as neuropathic pain in the genitofemoral nerve and also more generalized nerve pain in my abdomen. Drugs and cortisone shots provide some relief, but I want to know if there is anything that can provide more relief, especially for the gf nerve? Is there something more permanent that can be done to provide relief? I am feeling desperate for some answers.

Thanks in advance for any info that can be provided!
