Jul 31, 2015 · I'm traveling to Rochester, MN from Kansas City, MO in Visiting Mayo Clinic

Good luck find help at the Mayo. I was there at the end of 2012 and had surgery 1/16/2013. They are the best. The nicest people around. Very helpful. I hope you have a great experience.

Jul 31, 2015 · My chronic pain all started 4/11/06 in Chronic Pain

My chroic pain all started 4/11/06. I had a hysterectomy by Lapsurgery. I woke up an instantly had pain in my right groin. I went back to surgeon so many times. 5/19/06 Cystectomy, I only had one remaining ovary so we wanetd to tryto save it. Still had the same pain so on 6/10/06 ANOTHER SURGERY.Removal of ovary. Still had pain. UGH. Tried acupuncture,meds etc. Finally 3/07 I REFERED MYSELF to a pain clinic where they diagnosed me with ILIOINGUINAL NEURALGIA. It has been one hell of a ride. My health has declined ever since 4/06. So many things keep happening to me. Anyway, I have tried quite a few things over the years. Still have the pain. Gabapentin, Topamax, Tramadol, Percocet, Vicoden, Voltaren Gel, Lodocaine salve AND patches, TENS UNIT, etc. If I looked back at my records I would probably come up with more. Anyway, Neurologist I found through the MinnesotaNeuropathyAssociation was great.He worked really hard at trying to find which nerve was really causing the pain. The pain from my groin eventually went all the way down my leg. Lower leg, thigh and groin. Neuro came up with femoral nerve compresson. He finally referred me to the Mayo. After some testing, Dr. R. J. Spinner did a Femoral Decompression surgery for my lower leg. At the time, he said he could do one of the 3, I chose my lower leg since that was the worst. That surgery was 1/16/13. 2 1/2 years. Now I am wanting to work on my groin pain. Had a Ilioinguinal nerve block today. Feels like it made the pain better. My groin pain gets worse from pushing, law mowing, lifting, standing more than 30 minutes. I do attend a pain clinic. After my surgery at Mayo, things were going so well, I actually graduated from the pain clinic. Well, it slowly seemedto start getting worse around the middle of May 2015 so I went back to same clinic. Was there 2 weeks ago, di urine drug test, nerve block started back on Naproxen, go back 8/3. I guess this is my story. Any thoughts? Anything that worked for you that maybe I have not tried? HELP.

Sounds like neuropathy, definitely.
