Son in law waited months for pain clinic, after scans to determine where the paid radiated from they offered him anaesthetic into spine, only numbed the pain for a while. Stubborn man won't go back!
Had similar experience, only got to pain clinic after trying the physio and the NSAIDS with dyhydrocodeine or diclofenac and tramadol useless. I had the anaesthetic in the spine two occasions, neither occasion lasted for long. Finally I had spinal anesthesia whilst actually under anaesthetic an id apart from occasional twinge is now hunky dory. Had a GP once who said that most things only last for 3 months, then said that some people might need another 3 months [and a tiny percentage another 3 months]. Thing is it's the squeaky wheel that gets the oil so tell him to be a pain in the backside of those supposedly helping him and tell him good luck
