Alternative Treatment for Chronic Postsurgical Pain

I am a postsurgery (modified radical mastectomy with ANS) patient of about 7 months.  I am still having chronic pain in my surgical site.  The surgeon says every thing looks fine.  I cannot take pain meds because they stop my bowel.  Are there some effective nutritional supplements for it?
