Brief Answer:
Upload reports and prescription

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
The improvement in symptoms depends upon the extent of damage before surgery and delay in surgery.
Complications rate is less but can be another cause of no improvement or deterioration.
Upload images and prescription.
Drugs like pregabalin , gabapentin or amitriptyline can ve used.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
