After 3 months of agony he took an emg test and was diagnosed with peroneal nerve entrapment never even heard of this.the doctor told him he needs decompression surgery .Meanwhile it is,hard to even find a doctor that will do this,surgery .my husband has,not sat down in 3 months he cannot drive or stand for long periods of time .he is,on 1800 miligrams of gabapentin, motrin ,and oxycoton at night .please someone tell me how does this happen? He took one injection in his leg at first it helped but in 2 days the pain was back .i am trying to be supportive but it is,so hard since i see him so disabled I literally tie his shoes .my heart is broken as i wonder if surgery will help .wishing i could wake up from this nightmare .my husband was a,contractor by trade and he was a fisherman with a,boat and enjoyed everyday of life until now .still trying to process what happened .he gets radiating leg pain down his right leg with pins and needles and throbing .also his buttocks hurts and at night pain intensifies !!i havnt seen him cry so much in the 20 yrs we,are married .looking for info,input and advice .
