    Your doctor should be addressing any concerns you have as a lot depends on your case history itself. I assume it is your upper limb, on which you had the surgery, that is affected. Generally, a sympathetic nerve block works very well and pain may go away totally. Usually a nerve block is advised as soon as possible. I would however advise that you seek a second opinion from another neurologist before considering any other treatment modalities given you history of surgery. You may be experiencing some other complication related to your recent surgery.
