Nerve Pain

Has anyone experienced severe pain in the lower right side of the pelvis (along the pubic bone) that radiates into the groin since their hyst? This has been 10 months of pain without answers and am wondering if this could be nerve pain.

Nerve Pain

Hi Lori,
It could be nerve pain. I had lots of pelvic pain following the hyst. I was diagnosed with nerve damage a few years later. I had a few nerve blocks that brought some relief, but not long term. I did have surgery to remove parts of the damaged nerves, but again relief was short lived. I than started accupuncture treatments. Pelvic pain is mostly gone now. I have other issues, but the pelvic pain is not really an issue any more.

Nerve Pain

I have experienced that pain and it is not comfortable! As to what it is, I have too many choices to pick from! I wonder if mine could be more nerve related than anything, but involving my ovaries.

Have you been keeping a diary so you can see if there has been a pattern for the pain? Could it be related to your ovaries at all? I tend to think mine might be worse during certain points in my cycle. So far I have not found a pain medication to work and I take a few different prescription ones for other issues.

Talk to your doctor and possibly see a neurologist -- I should ask mine about that pain but I never remember when I am in his office as we are talking about my upper body!

I hope you find the source of the pain soon and find a successful treatment option! If you don't have a pain diary, start one and see if it you notice anything affecting the pain or causing the pain to change. That is how I noticed mine seemed affected by my cycle and other pelvic pain. in there! S

Nerve Pain

I have that pain and have been having a PT work on it. She thought it felt weird by the bone and so my doc had me have an MRI but nothing showed.

In the meantime it is better since since the PT has been trying to work out the pain but it was extremely painful when she first started working on it.

I still have no idea what the cause is.

Good luck!

Nerve Pain

I saw a pain-management specialist for left-sided pelvic pain and also lower back pain following my LAVH. He did several nerve blocks which resulted in the problem area being isolated. Then I had these nerves ablated with a radio-frequency treatment with good results. I know this is a long road and may sound discouraging but if you push forward and get a referral to a pain specialist you will likely make progress. I had 2 years of pain before I got to the point of seeking out specialized treatment for pain and should have done it sooner. I also still take several types of medications specifically designed to control nerve pain (Lyrica & Topamax), and this might be an option for you. It sounds like first you need a better work-up, however, to determine if this is the type of pain you have. Best of luck to you. I certainly do feel for you and can identify with all you are going through.
