Neuralgia llioinguinal

I've not heard of neuralgia. However, I did have damaged illingual (sp?) nerves. I had the left nerve removed in Sept 2001 and the right nerve removed in Feb 2002.

Unfortunately it hasn't taken care of my pain and swelling. One thing that does help is when the doc gives me a shot of depo-medrol. I usually get one good week of 85% relief, than gradually the pain and swelling returns. My doc doesn't want to continue to give me the shots as they contain steroids.

My nonmedical understanding is that Llioinguinal is a ligament (sp) that is in the pelvic region and the nerves that travel along the ligament control all the nerves in the pelvic region.
I've recently been diagnsosied with this very painful condition as a result of my surgery and am seeking the experiences of others to learn from their experiences.
Sorry, I was unable to reply right away to your question as I was out of town for the weekend.
Hopes this answers your questions.

I would also be interested to hear more about this, my general surgeon said that my pain on the right was likely due to a trapped nerve but didn't elaborate, wonder if it's this?

My pain goes down my right side into my groin and sometimes into my leg, can be dull crampy, sharp and knife like and sometimes throbbing......sound familiar at all??

Neuralgia llioinguinal

I do not have pain down the leg but definetly in the groin and have had since my surgery. For me it is both sides of the groin, however pain is limited to the sitting position. Standing and laying does not attribute to the degree of pain only sitting and the longer I have to sit - for working - the worse the pain.
I am being treated by a pain specialist. Hope that this helps you in some small way.

groin pain

Hi Girls! I usually post to cancer concerns, but I came on this forum for this exact problem. There it was!!!! I have this nerve damage in the left pelvic region. My nanny fell on me while lifting my child over me. Her elbows landed in my incision area and I went back to hospital for internal injuries for two more weeks. I have A LOT of pain it is getting worse even though I am in PAIN MANAGEMENT! My question is- what meds are any of you on for this nerve damage? Mine seem to be not working anymore and I am interested in getting injections or anesthesia to that area. Thank you for your help! sss to all you es!!!!

I would suggest that you consult with your pain mgmt doctor and let him/her know that the pain medication is not working any longer.

I did find some relief with shots of depomedrol mixed w/ marcane. However, I recently received a shot of lidocaine in my incision and since than things have gone downhill rapidly.

Guess what I'm trying to say is to be careful and discuss your options fully and make sure the doc knows what their doing.
