I have to be honest, OP, from the stories I have heard if these injections do not work my dad's mare will be retired and if she is in a considerable amount of pain, we will have her put down. If not, she will be a companion horse.
Cutting the nerves works sometimes, but not all the times. It is a costly and messy procedure and my trainer has a horse who she decided to cut the nerve on, the nerve regrew and the horse is in worse shape than before.
