groin & hip pain

15 months post op from a hysterectomy and tummy tuck. Kept my ovaries but not cervix. Since the surgery I have had pain in my right groin area, pubic bone and my hip and abdominal cramping.

I've had ultrsounds, mri's, blood work, and xrays. I've seen a urologist, general surgeon, pain specialist, gynecologist, physical therapist, orthopedic, and general physician. I've also tried acupuncture. Each doctor tells me something else, from cysts on ovaries, nerve damage, referred pain, arthritis, cystitis, and misalignment of my hips. I've tried gabapentin, lyrica, cymbalta, flexeril, vicodin, detrol, emeril, b12, glucosamine, and advil. I rarely have a pain free day. I've had nerve blocks in my groin and steroid injections in my back and hip joint. Nothing seems to help.

What else can I do? I want my life back. I'm only 44 and my 70 year old mother gets around better than I do.

Re: groin & hip pain

I continued to have pelvic pain after my tah/bso. I was finally diagnosed with nerve damage. I did try the gabapentin and neurontin. Niether of them helped much. I than had surgery to revise my incision and to remove the damaged nerves. I still had pain, was placed on the fentanyl patch and also took Darvocet N100 for breakthru pain. I was on this combo for many, many years.

Out of desparation after I lost my job, I decided to give acupuncture a go. It proved to be the best decision I ever made. I am off all pain meds, rarely have any nerve or pelvic pain. Might be something for you to consider.

I can relate to the varying diagnoses. I had sooooooo many tests over the years. None proved to be that helpful. And all the different doctors I saw, I lost count. The pain, the frustration of no one really helping. It was when I found a very kind general surgeon, who than referred me to an Osteopathic doctor, which than led to my acupuncturist. It was a long process, but worth the journey.
