I had a supra cervical laproscopic hysterectomy on Aug. 3, 2009 due to adenomyosis. A few days after the surgery the pain was still there and I am still experiencing the pain. MRI of the lumbar, CT of the pelvis, pelvic and vaginal ultrasound revealed nothing. I have had this pain since early 2004, at first it felt as if my womb was falling out, I had no other way to describe it. I was diagnosed with adenomyosis in 2008. I am to the point of seeing a pain management doctor for trigger point therapy to see if it works. The areas of the pain, between the labia and the fold of my leg, at times it radiates into my vagina with a stabbing or throbbing pain, at times I cannot exercise or participate in activities requiring a lot of walking sometimes I cannot even lift a bag or two because then I am in pain. I need help. I feel like an old lady with aches and pains, and I am only 40.

I also have similar pain since my abdominal hysterectomy to a point where I am cannot work due to the debilitating pain. Unfortunately PN/PNE is not well understood by doctors except by the few who specialize in it. I have found alot of info on this website--"www.pudendalhelp.com" I hope this info will be useful and let us know how you are doing. God bless and good luck

  • Thank you so much, i will consult with my neurologist asap!I have had two nerve blocks in October both under anesthesia. The first one the pain returned four days later. The second one the pain returned the next day and it moved from the right to the left side. My neurosurgeon is sending me to a pelvic specialist to evaluate me, once they consult then they will come to a conclusion as to what the next step is. He did tell me that the last result for some is surgery which is an ugly scar on the buttocks and it has only been successful in 66% out of 1005 of patients. So this is where I am now. One thing that I have learned being experienced in the medical business field and also a patient, do not be afraid to research your issues, talk with your physician throughly, write your questions down prior to your visit and get answers, if you can't then ask to be referred to a doctor that can or find another doctor. Some don't know where to turn for answers, just use a general search enging and type your question in, reword it as well so that you can obtain other explanations. I will continue to post as much as I can. Just as a blogger assisted me, I want to be able to do the same. God Bless!!!

  • For 4 years I have suffered from symptoms consistent with those described by those who suffer from Chronic Prostatitis and Pudendal Neuralgia. I have even been diagnosed with those disorders although not to the extent that I felt satisfied with pursuing medical procedures. I was recently diagnosed with a Labral Hip Tear - the Orthopaedist who diagnosed me stated that most if not all of my symptoms could be attributed to a labral hip tear: • burning in testes• burning when I sit• back of glute and genital pain• SI Joint pain• tip of penis pain• spreading burning after long periods of sittingI am very very concerned that there are many men and women who need to have this examined before pursing treatment for prostatitis or pudendal neuralgia. If you are an active person who suddenly started having groin pain - instead of accepting the Chronic Prostatitis diagnosis - have your hip checked out - it could be a labral tear.
