The first thing is to make absolutely certain that the nerve has been decompressed--  if this was an open procedure I guess I should assume the nerve was visualized and there is nothing pinching or pushing against the nerve.  Beyond that the only thing I know of would be the 'usual anticonvulsants'-- neurontin in high doses, lyrica, tegretol... sometimes a small amount of an opiate makes a big difference.
