It could be nerve root pain due to the type of cancer.  Did they do a CT scan?

No CT scan. We might consider an MRI next. 

We do think it is nerve pain/sensitivity before and after amputation.

1 week after the amputation he was placed on a 72 hour ketamine/fentynal/lidocaine CRI to reduce and/or eliminate the wind-up pain.  

This helped for a week or so but now the pain is resurfacing.

We are going to try to increase the pregablin before taking next steps.

I would pursue the CT or MRI.  Have you tried acupuncture?
