Continuing pain after surgery

I had my entire right lung removed 8 years ago and have suffered with

pain ever since.  I had 6 weeks of radiation which has contributed to

the issue.  I have done massage, chiropractor, and have now started

nerve blocks.  They are suggesting a permanent nerve block for 6

nerves in my back but I'm not sure about this decision.  Does anyone

have any experience with this?  I've been on several drugs for neuropathic

pain and just got on a new one called Lyrica which seems to be working.

I would prefer to go a more natural route rather than taking more meds.

but don't know if it's possible.

Also, does anyone have a good nutrition program for building up

our immune systems?
