Hi Elizabeth, Welcome to The Family. Your Dad needs to be on neurontin or lyrica for pain all day 24/7. The pain needs to be controlled at all times. Narcotics don’t work as well as neurontin or lyrica do on nerve pain. He can be given up to 5600mg in a 24 hr period. 300mg 3times a day is a good place to start, if that doesn’t take care of the pain than raise it by 100mg or higher until the level of pain is controlled.
You didn’t say whether your Dad had ivig or pp or no treatment to this point. What treatment has he been given?

Your support of Him is Great! Keep a positive attitude and environment around your Dad and his recovery will come along. Take care.
