Radiofrequency neruroablation - Hesitant to do this!

OK, I saw a PM doc last week. I do not have any nerve related problem, but he has proposed to zap my nerves so that I don't feel any abdominal pain.

I am hesitant to do this until my abdominal wall structure and the color of my skin is normal. I still have a recessed spot - kind of like an inverted hernia (lol) on the midline. My skin remains dark in that area. It is not getting any darker in color unless it is aggravated, but the size of the dark area has increased to the right and is about 4" wide. The right side hurts worse than the left too. There are darker stripes about 1/4" wide where my skin/fat puckers where it is being pulled into the recess when is sit/stand.

I don't think the Drs. know what's going on. Wish I could make it stick out instead of suck in in so I could get it fixed. CTs are normal. I had an MRI Friday but don't know results yet. I expect the MRI will show 'normal' too as this area fills in when I lay down.

My skin is very sore and with the color looking like a possible circulation issue, I'm afraid zapping the nerves and not having any feeling will allow me to put pressure on it and cause more problems in the long haul.
