Postherpetic Neuralgia Pain Gone




Susan had Shingles that developed into Postherpetic Neuralgia, a painful condition characterized by burning and itching. She searched for help and tried many remedies. Nothing worked until she found Dr. Demetrio Aguila, a pain-focused peripheral nerve surgeon. Watch her story and learn more about surgical relief for Postherpetic Neuralgia.


"I am Susan Begley from Corbin Kentucky.

 

The pain started before the rash appeared. I had a particular pain in the left side of my forehead right at my eyebrow and it was intense.”

 

She then developed Shingles.

 

“The Shingles came and went but the pain from the neuralgia stayed and it

never went away.

 

I lived through it through holidays, birthdays whatever I had to do you know

to get through the whatever was going on.”

 

She tried many treatments and saw dozens of doctors.

Nothing worked.

Then she found Dr. Demetrio Aguila, a pain-focused peripheral nerve surgeon at Total Pain Solutions in Omaha, Nebraska.

She started watching his YouTube channel.

 

“I watched testimonials with people that had had the same thing in the same spot and were pain free.”

 

Susan and her husband made the trip to Omaha and met Dr. Aguila.

 

“I liked him immediately. He explained everything what he did and told us different stories about how it came about.”

 

Susan went ahead with the surgical procedure.

 

Dr. Aguila removed her supraorbital and supratrochlear nerves as well as two additional nerves he found.

 

The procedure was done in the office under local anesthesia, without the risks, side effects, or costs of undergoing general anesthesia in the operating room.

 

The surgery was a success.

 

“I have not had any pain since he's done the surgery. The incision is there and it's just the tenderness from that but it's a different kind of pain I don't have that same pain I had before.

 

During the surgery he was explaining what he was doing, and he asked me if I

was okay several times as we were going and everything was good. It was a good experience.

 

This was my last hope and I believe we found the solution.”
