Hi and welcome to HCM.
Yes it seems like this is neuroenic pain caused by nerve infiltration and this is usually retractable to standard therapy but consult specialts that is specialized in pain managment. SOme stronger opiats or opiats plasters migh be helpful and I think that you shouldnt feel such pain in modern medical area.
WIsh you good health.
