:mad: My daughter, Candace, had her first (and last baby) almost 9 months ago. She had 32 hours of very extreme back labor, 2 failed epidurals and finally we pleaded for a c-section. Since Day 1 after the c-section, she has complained of pain in her left hip & left groin area. As the baby grew, her pain intensified due to his weight and her trying to lift him.

She has been to 2 orthopedic surgeons, 2 ob/gyns, 2 family doctors, a pain management specialist/neurologist for 2 pain blocks ( which hurt like ***l for 2 days each time and did not help her at all). She has been seen by 2 emergency rooms, given a pain shot (or pills) and sent home. Nobody seems to be interested in her pain. She has had x-rays, MRI, a bone scan last week (which showed an abnormality in the head) and today she had a ct scan for this. We are awaiting the results of this test.

Do any of you have any ideasas to what could be causing her all this pain? It is excruciating.

Also, during all these visits to doctors, hospitals, no one person has taken a blood sample to see if she could have some type of infection going on causing all this pain.:mad:

  • I had nerve damage from a routine hysterectomy about 2 years ago. I think it was just one of those things; everyone's body is a little different and I think the doctor must have knicked a nerve or caught the nerve in a stitch or whatever; doesn't matter -- the pain was there the moment I work up in recovery. The nerve damage was confirmed by a neurologist who performed an EMG (nerve conductivity test) on my left groin and leg. The treatment is Neurotin and Lyrica medications and time.
