Neuropathic pain due to laparoscopy

Posted by @catrogocki in Brain & Nervous System, Apr 28, 2013

Hi there,

I am suffering with terrible nerve pain in my abdomen following two laparoscopies for endometriosis and other gynecological reasons.

My pain specialist has describes it as neuropathic pain in the genitofemoral nerve and also more generalized nerve pain in my abdomen. Drugs and cortisone shots provide some relief, but I want to know if there is anything that can provide more relief, especially for the gf nerve? Is there something more permanent that can be done to provide relief? I am feeling desperate for some answers.

Thanks in advance for any info that can be provided!

If u r complaining from a neuropathic pain , imipramine (GN) is the best choice.

I am on gabapentin and nortriptyline. Would you recommend switching from the nortriptyline to imipramine?

Thanks, cathryn
