Apr 4, 2014 · Chronic inguinal pain in Chronic Pain

I have chronic pain groin pain. Was considering surgery by Dr. Ducic in Washington DC for nerve removal. Like many I travelled across country to look for a pain solution. Instead I attended a 3 week pain rehabilitation program at Mayo Clinic. They helped me get off the pain meds and learn techniques to help manage the pain. I highly recommend the program.  While I still have pain it no longer is the driver but the passenger.

Hi Keri. We were taught cognitive behavioral therapy at the Mayo pain program. Your thoughts, feelings and behaviors are all connected. One affecting each other. How you think can cause different emotional reactions, physical reactions and behaviors. A saying I remember form the program: “I am driving the car, not pain. Pain is just a passenger.” Check out the program. I found it very valuable. Tom

I am sorry to hear about your pain. I went through a 3 1/2 week pain rehabilitation program at Mayo Clinic F all 2012 for chronic groin pain I have from n erve damage as the result of a surgery. They took me off all my pain meds and taught me how to manage the p ain using techniques like deep breathing, relaxation, distraction, moderation and modification. Sure, I still have the pain but I control it now instead of it controlling me. I highly recommend the program.

It was Laurence Levine. Since my last post I went through a 3 1/2 week pain rehabilitation program at Mayo. They are wonderful people. I am off my medicines and am managing my pain though tools like relaxation, distraction, and deep breathing. I highly recommend the program.

My doc told me the same thing about RFA. Sorry it didn’t help you. The denervation worked for about 10 months and th new pain I have now is not as intense opr in the same spot.. It was denervation of the spermatic chord. The last pain doc I saw said he wouldn’t have recommended the denervation – but not sure why. Not sure if my new pain is from it or the orginal surgery. Google microsurgical denervation to learn more. A doc in Chicago did my surgery.

Hi Keri. Sorry to hear about your pain. I, too, have been searching for a solution for my chronci groin pain caused by nerve damage from prior surgery. Have had my pain 3 years. I am on pain meds. have tried PT, injections and denervation of my permatic chord. I am exploring Peripheral Nerve Stimulation. Doc told me RFA isn;t covered by insurance.
