Chronic inguinal pain
I am 38 years old & have suffered an injury to my ilioinguinal/hypogastric nerves after a gynological surgery. My nerve pain is in my right groin & right pubic area, occasional travels down my inner thigh. I am on Gabitril (antineuroleptic), methadone, tramadol & Zoloft for pain control. I had a peripheral nerve stimulator implanted in my abdomen, but it needed to be removed a yr later due to a chronic infection @ my incision site. It relieved about 30% of my pain but could have helped more if it didn’t get the infection. My life has completley changed. The pain has limited me on doing things I used to do.
I have an appt. next month in Rochester, Mayo w/ Dr Mathew Pingree, @ the pain clinic.
Has anyone suffered this type of pain? Has anyone had pulse RF or RF ablation done? I’m scared to have an ablation or a chemical ablation due to the risk of developing an neuritis that could make my pain worse.
